English Synonyms and Antonyms

  1. secure

    The legal term arrest carries always the implication of a legal offense; this is true even of arresting for debt. But one may be detained by process of law when no offense is alleged against him, as in the case of a witness who is held in a house of detention till a case comes to trial. One may be restrained of his liberty without arrest, as in an insane asylum; an individual or corporation may be restrained by injunction from selling certain property. In case of an arrest, an officer may secure his prisoner by fetters, by a locked door, or other means effectually to prevent escape. Capture is commonly used of seizure by armed force; as, to capture a ship, a fort, etc. Compare HINDER; OBSTRUCT.

    Synonyms:
    apprehend, arrest, capture, catch, detain, hold, make prisoner, restrain, seize, stop, take into custody, take prisoner

    Antonyms:
    discharge, dismiss, free, liberate, release, set free

    Preposition:
    Arrested for crime, on suspicion, by the sheriff; on, upon, or by virtue of a warrant; on final process; in execution.
