Police arrested a man who broke through a window of a home after allegedly fleeing the scene of a crash in the Kensington section of Philadelphia.
Police say the unidentified man left the scene of a crash on the 800 block of Cornwall Street Wednesday night. He then ran into a backyard and used a ladder to climb onto the roof of a home, investigators said.
SkyForce10 was over the scene as the man walked on top of the rooftops and then struck the window of one of the homes repeatedly before breaking the glass. He then climbed inside.
Marty Todd, a resident who lives nearby, told NBC10 he grabbed a machete when he heard the suspect outside. Todd then ran into his brother who said he was pushed by the suspect.
"He said, 'He pushed me against the drain pipe and climbed a roof on one of those aluminum drain pipes,'" Todd said.
Police were able to get inside the home and took the man into custody. They have not yet released his identity.
