A witness in Richmond, London, told yesterday how screen hardman Tom Hardy chased a thief through gardens and across a building site — before proudly announcing: “I caught the ****.”

He said Tom flew after the yob, who had crashed a stolen moped then fled.

The Legend, Batman and Taboo star vaulted walls as he sprinted after the crook — then grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and patted him down for concealed weapons.

Arun Pullen, 22, said: “It was mental – like he’d switched to superhero mode in an action movie. Two boys on the nicked moped had jumped a red light and smashed into a car.

“Tom must have been walking down the road. He went off like a shot in pursuit and looked furious. If the kid had been dumb enough to resist I reckon Tom would have given him a good hiding.”

Arun watched as the actor, who lives nearby in Richmond, South West London, hauled the runaway thief into a bus stop and patted him down.

He said: “The kid looked wrecked and in shock.

“Tom Hardy’s clearly not a man you’d mess with. I think he even checked the kid’s ID before cops took over.”

Arun said Tom used the C-word to describe the thief.

He added: “I asked Tom what happened and he told me he chased him through my back garden and caught him around the block — but the route was like an assault course.”

Both thieves were injured. One was caught within moments but the other fled through gardens towards waste ground, where Tom caught up with him and made a citizen’s arrest.

Two suspects were arrested on suspicion of theft and taking a vehicle without consent.

Tom Hardy’s spokeswoman declined to comment.
