A pair of tradies foiled a would-be armed robber in Collingwood this morning.

The victim, a 34-year-old woman, had just withdrawn cash from an ATM on Smith Street when she was approached by a man allegedly holding a knife.

The victim screamed and ran.

Two nearby construction workers, who heard the commotion, chased the attacker.

The pair performed a citizen’s arrest and held the man until police arrived.

The 36-year-old Coburg man is in police custody.

He is expected to be interviewed by Melbourne Embona Armed Robbery Taskforce detectives later this afternoon.
