A sub-inspector at Aarey Sub Police Station in Goregaon (East) was attacked by robbers trying to steal expensive props from Filmcity late Wednesday evening.
A police team was patrolling the area when it saw two men trying to enter a set in Filmcity. Sub-inspector S Khamgad gave a chase and caught the robbers.
As he began to drag the two, they pushed and attacked him.
Khamgad fell and the robbers, later identified as Samir and Shoeb Ansari, fled.
Khamgad, who was bruised in the attack, told seniors since the two were habitual offenders he suspected they entered Filmcity with an intention to rob.
"After the case was registered, we alerted sources and on Saturday morning, arrested the two from their Goregaon (East) residence," said Uttam More, senior inspector.
The Ansaris have been charged with robbery and trespassing.
