Not so fast, Mate -- you're only showing us part of the loaf. The statute you cited specifically begins with:

§ 15A‑404. Detention of offenders by private persons.

(a) No Arrest; Detention Permitted. – No private person may arrest another person except as provided in G.S. 15A‑405. A private person may detain another person as provided in this section.
It would appear that arrests by private persons ARE contemplated, but under a separate section of the statutes. So what does Section 15A-405 say about arrests by private persons?
