Bangor police were able to catch up with a burglary suspect after he fell while attempting to jump from one rooftop to another on Wednesday.
Lance Bradford, 34, of Levant faces a felony burglary charge as well as charges of criminal mischief and assault.
Police say Bradford entered a man's house near West Broadway and assaulted him just before noon. During the struggle, the man was able to break away and call police. The distraught homeowner told police he did not know the man, later identified as Bradford.
Bradford left the man's house just before the officers arrived, but a caller soon reported Bradford had entered a house on the corner of Pier Street and West Broadway.
Bradford crawled out of a second-floor window and onto the roof. From there, Bradford tried but failed to jump onto the roof of the building next door, police said.
Officers were waiting when Bradford fell between the buildings and onto the ground. Police took Bradford into custody.
He was taken to Penobscot County Jail.
Police say Bradford sustained minor injuries.
