Man Grabbed by Police After Attempting to Scale Trump Tower With Suction Cups

Posted on August 10, 2016

A man tried to scale Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City today using suction cup technology. Trump Tower is a 58-story skyscraper. Donald Trump is the GOP presidential candidate so the climber picked a very newsworthy building.

The incident lasted for hours. Police finally grabbed the suction cup man and pulled him in through a window that had smashed out. ABC News reports that an NYPD official said of the man, "This is clearly a stunt guy. The guy doesn't appear to be here to do anything evil."

Here are videos of the man climbing and being snatched up by police. Take a look:
