Taye Diggs Chases Down Home Invader

title or description

A quick note to any salesmen hoping to unload a home security system on Private Practice star Taye Diggs: He doesn't need one.

Last night, after returning to his Los Angeles home from the Screen Actors Guild Awards with his wife Idina Menzel at 11:20 p.m., Diggs discovered a burglar in his garage. The intruder – first reported on by TMZ and later identified as Hassan Juma, 20 – attempted to flee, but didn't get very far.

"The suspect tried to run away, but [Diggs] chased him down the street and was able to detain him until police arrived," LAPD spokesman Richard French tells PEOPLE. "At this time, I don't know exactly what he did to the suspect to detain him."

Juma was arrested, charged with burglary and is currently in custody. Bail has been set at $50,000.

Diggs's crime-fighting exploits capped off a busy evening for the actor. Earlier in the night, he and Cougar Town actress Busy Philipps handed out the SAG Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a drama series to Claire Danes for her role in Homeland.

At the after-party following the awards ceremony, Diggs, 42, and wife Menzel ripped it up on the dance floor to the beats of DJ Pesce.
