The NYPD’s hostage negotiation team has been talking with a 44-year-old man who climbed up a tree in Queens and has refused to come down for more than 24 hours, law enforcement sources with direct knowledge of the investigation tell News 4.
Police responding to a 911 call about a dispute inside a building on 145th Avenue in Brookville encountered the man when they arrived. They say he was wanted in connection with a past assault but didn’t specify the nature of it. News 4 has learned the dispute involved some kind of argument with his mother, but there was no indication that any physical violence was involved at the time of the call.
The man ran away from the officers and climbed onto the roof of the home. Emergency crews responded and tried to talk the man down — but he moved into a nearby tree in an effort to avoid officers, police say, and hasn’t come down since.
The NYPD’s hostage negotiation unit is on scene and has an ongoing dialogue with the man, police say. He’s now been sitting there for the last full day and change, though he did fall asleep for a period of time, according to sources.
No other details were immediately available.
