A MAN has been taken to Bathurst Base Hospital for a mental health assessment after allegedly smashing a glass window in the city's CBD.
The man was chased down the street, arrested and held by by-standers who allegedly witnessed the incident, until police arrived at the scene.
Duty Officer with Chifley Police District, David Abercrombie said officers were called to the scene just after one o'clock, after reports the man had allegedly smashed a shop window with his skateboard.
Inspector Abercrombie said by standers gave chase and literally grabbed the man holding him until police arrived a short time later.
Paramedics were also called to the scene, and transported the man, who was in a stable condition, to Bathurst Base Hospital.
