CHICAGO (WGN) -- A man was taken into custody Monday morning after hanging off the side of Trump Tower for more than 13 hours.

The incident at Trump Tower, 401 N. Wabash Ave., started around 6 p.m. Sunday.

Police “negotiated for over 13 hours with a distraught man who had rappelled over a ledge on 16th-floor patio of the Trump hotel,” Chicago Police Cmdr. Patty Casey said at a news conference Monday.

Police did not immediately release the suspect's name or any charges.


The Chicago Sun-Times reports the man, who is in his 20s, began dangling from the tower’s 16th-floor balcony about 5:30 p.m., asking to speak to the president and trying to get his message to the media, according to Chicago Police. Police officers at the scene said they believe the man used a climbing harness.
