Witnesses say police brought a McDonald’s meal to a man accused of climbing onto the roof of a house in Llanrumney and throwing tiles at a nearby car in an attempt to entice him down.
The suspect forced his way into a semi-detached house on Dickens Avenue in Llanrumney, Cardiff at around 9pm on Saturday 10th August before making his way through the roof from the attic below.
Witnesses said police officers brought the man a McDonald’s burger to entice him down from the rooftops.
Hayley O’Brien, who lives at the property, was out at the time but said she arrived home after a night out to find the man “hanging out of the attic”, having ripped the tiles and felting right down to the rafters.
Witnesses say armed police were on the street outside the two houses trying to talk down the man, who kept asking for a McDonald’s burger.
Police officers were called at 9.30pm but waited for back-up before they tried to enter the property.
Officers armed with Tasers also arrived to help, but in the end the man was talked down without their use at 3.30am.
