The members of Beyonce Knowles' backing band are being hailed as heroes after making a citizen's arrest in Los Angeles following a mugging.

Four members of the DESTINY'S CHILD singer's group called police and then detained a man after witnessing him attacking a pensioner in a parking lot.

The mugger reportedly attacked his victim, who was in his 90s, for his prescription drugs, wallet and car keys and was trying to make off with his motor when Beyonce's boys apprehended him.

ADRIAN BUSH, who helped chase down the suspect, says, "Me and this other young man tackled him down and then the other guys surrounded him so he wouldn't run anywhere."
