Virginia – Police grab man climbing New York City Trump Tower


Police arrested a man who spent three hours climbing the glass façade of Trump Tower on Wednesday using large suction cups after they grabbed him and hauled him to safety through an open window. The man, identified by police as a 20-year-old Virginia man, said he wanted an “audience” with Donald Trump, which is why he climbed as high as the 21st floor before being taken in by police. “I reached out. I took hold of his hand and I said, ‘Sir, would you come with me,’” said detective Christopher Williams, who made the grab. A day before the ascent, the man posted a video on Youtube. “I am an independent researcher seeking a private audience with you to discuss an important matter. I guarantee that it’s in your interest to honor this request,” he said. “Believe me, if my purpose was not significant, I would not risk my life pursuing it. The reason I climbed your tower is to get your attention. If I had sought this via conventional means, I would be much less likely to have success because you are a busy man with many responsibilities.”
