German term or phrase: § 127 StPO Vorläufige Festnahme
Dear fellow translators,

I am looking for an *official* translation of the following. I would be grateful for any help.

Many thanks.


§ 127 StPO Vorläufige Festnahme (Jedermannsparagraph)
Wird jemand auf frischer Tat betroffen oder verfolgt, so ist, wenn er der Flucht verdächtig ist oder seine Identität nicht sofort festgestellt werden kann, jedermann befugt, ihn auch ohne richterliche Anordnung vorläufig festzunehmen. Die Feststellung der Identität einer Person durch die Staatsanwaltschaft oder die Beamten des Polizeidienstes bestimmt sich nach
§ 163 b Abs. 1.

§ 127 StPO Vorläufige Festnahme
Taking into custody


Explanation:
Is the likely heading for this provision; it also appears to cover the rules of "Citizen's arrest" which apply in the UK, apart from the law laying down any enforcement officer's rights of arrest..
