Jamie Oliver Apprehends "Aggressive" Intruder Near London Home

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver reportedly confronted and pinned down an "aggressive" intruder who attempted to break into a number of homes in the area of Oliver's London residence.

According to, Oliver and a number of his neighbours are said to have "apprehended" the intruder until police arrived on the scene.

Doing The Right Thing

A source told The Daily Mirror, "It was understandably very scary as Jamie was with the whole family in his house at the time… He was just trying to do the right thing.

"He was set to investigate but before he knew it, he was face-to-face with the burglar himself as he tried to smash his way into his house as well.

"Jamie went absolutely mad and sprinted after the man down the street before catching up with him and pinning him down to the floor."


Oliver was subsequently assisted in his apprehension of the intruder by several other residents of the area.
