Agarra-lhe no braço

You should consider the market to which this text is destined. If it is to be published and read by Brazilian people, the suggestions made above are better; in case this is destined for a Portuguese public, this would be a better way to say it.

Agarra o braço dele.

Se é português do Brasil, fica sempre mais claro usar o "dele", em vez de "o seu". O estrangeiro tem sempre dificuldade com "seu/sua", em virtude do uso de "você/o senhor", no Brasil, em vez de "tu e vós".
"Agarra o seu braço", numa frase separada, você deve concordar, fica muito ambígüo - não se sabe se é "o braço de um outro", ou "o braço do senhor".
