Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman tackles thief before offering him a job

Doctor Who and Torchwood star John Barrowman tackled a potential thief who had ransacked a room and punched a member of staff at the Glasgow hotel he’s currently staying in.
The 44-year-old is said to have dragged the fleeing teen to the ground to subdue him, moments after arriving at the hotel from Newcastle, where he had been at a concert with his parents.
Barrowman stopped the youngster in his tracks after a woman and her husband had woken to find two boys ransacking their room in the early hours of Thursday and a hotel worker was punched.
"I grabbed the kid’s ankles, yanked him to the ground and then pulled him out into the hallway. I pinned him down.
"My tour manager then arrived and the three of us held him down until the police came."
But the kind hearted TV personality, who married partner Scott Gill at Cardiff’s St David’s Hotel in 2006, claimed he’d like to offer the troubled teen a job backstage in his panto at Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre, saying: “It was sad. He was only 14 or 15. I think he was on drugs.
"But I’d like to find out the boy’s story and give him a second chance.
"Maybe he could work in the pantomime over Christmas to give him a sense of responsibility."
