An unidentified man was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after he allegedly broke into a Bayside home, made his way up to the roof and threatened to jump, the Police Department said.

Officers responded to initial calls of a break-in on Francis Lewis Boulevard near 35th Avenue, where they found the man, who has yet to be identified, on the roof of the two-story home. He was eventually taken into custody. Officers were on the roof with the man for about an hour before he was seen being wheeled into an ambulance truck on a stretcher.

There were no injuries, police said. The suspect was not immediately identified.

Chelsea Jun, who lives inside the home, said she was sitting in her living room alone when a tall man barged in with a wound on one of his hands and said he needed a place to hide.

“He said someone was running after him,” Jun said. “He wanted to know if there was a way to the attic.”

He then started using her bedsheets to tie himself a rope to escape out the home’s second-floor window before police had arrived.

Police were still investigating the scene and its neighboring homes to check if the man had stolen or damaged any other property.

one who was really there from Bayside says:
tony if you knew what you were talking about you would know that its a 2 family house and the woman who had been inside was sitting in one of the patrol cars and the woman who you say you were standing next to was the other tenant who was out with her child and came home while this was going on.And yes they walked him out and he was then placed on the stretcher to be taken for evaluation.As far as the photo it is accurate with the amount of uniformed and plainclothes Officers that were there you could not personally identify every Officer that was there of this I am sure so stop making inaccurate statements. Good job NYPD

Old school from Bayside says:
That man is a career criminal. He is an old TMR gang member named Kendo. He just served a 15 year prison sentence and was high on Drugs. Good riddance. Hopefully he stays in jail.
