PITTSBURGH (AP) A Pittsburgh property manager who's also a part-time boxing coach recognized and tackled a man suspected of repeatedly stealing packages from apartment buildings and held him until police arrived.

Mike McSorley took down the suspected thief early Wednesday.

Pittsburgh police say they arrested 42-year-old Samuel David in connection with the thefts. No lawyer was listed for him in online court documents.

McSorley trains professional boxers at a nearby gym. He says he recognized the man from surveillance footage of prior thefts.
