Man Scales Trump Tower Using Suction Cups, Captured by NYPD

By | On August 11, 2016



NYPD Special Ops grabbed the climber and quickly pulled him into the building. The climber appeared to resist but they were able to pull him over the ledge. At one point, just his legs could be seen in the air as NYPD apprehended him. Updates to come regarding his identity. See below for a video reportedly posted by the climber on YouTube.

Cops have captured a man who tried to scale the side of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan this afternoon after an hours-long standoff.

Responding officers yanked the man into the building around 6:35 p.m. after knocking out a full window pane on the 21st floor



It was unclear why the man scaled the building.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump is more than 500 miles away from New York City. He held a rally in Abingdon, Virginia, this afternoon.

Trump's campaign has not commented on the climber but Trump Organization EVP Michael Cohen said in a statement: "This man performed a ridiculous and dangerous stunt. There’s damage to the building and he caused the unnecessary deployment of New York’s finest to protect his safety and the safety of everyone in the building.

"He’s caused the shutdown of traffic on Fifth Avenue. I’m 100 percent certain the NYPD had better things to do. If Mr. Trump were here he’d be thanking law enforcement for the job they’re doing."
