WESTLAKE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A man fleeing from the LAPD climbed onto the roof of an office building with "various tools" and remained for almost two hours in a bizarre standoff.
The incident occurred around 8 p.m. Sunday near W. 4th St and Coronado St in the Westlake neighborhood near MacArthur Park.
The suspect was wanted for assault with a deadly weapon.
The man appeared to have an odd assortment of items such as a grappling hook, tripod and a large tarp. At one point, he used the grappling hook to lower a bag to the sidewalk, which was taken by the LAPD.
He later climbed down and was taken into custody without incident.
The person involved in the alleged assault with a deadly weapon did not suffer serious injuries.
