While our 3News crew was working on a story out on North Beach they found themselves in a tense situation. They actually caught an act of vandalism as it happened.

A man threw a rock shattering a window at the Yo Philly Cheesesteak Restaurant. we're told this was the second time in a week that same man tried to vandalize the restaurant.

The owner of the business was able to tackle the suspect and keep him at the scene until police arrived.
