MADISON (WKOW) -- Police arrested a Madison man after he tried to steal a package of a herbal incense Friday night.

A clerk at the BP gas station on Mohawk Drive told police the man tried to reach behind a glass partition that separates the cashier's quarters from the retail area. 

Police say the employee, with the help of a customer, trapped the suspect in the store. The suspect shook the door, shattering the glass, before running out of a side door.

The clerk and two customers caught up with the suspect and held him down until police arrived. Officers arrested Prince W.D. Owens, 28, for burglary and criminal damage to property.
