Batavia police are on Hutchins Street dealing with a person who is reportedly on a rooftop hallucinating and yelling statements about the police.
Batavia Fire Department is sending over a ladder truck and Mercy EMS is in route.
UPDATE 4:52 p.m.: The person is safely off the roof and is being transported to UMMC for evaluation. Lt. Jim Henning said that the subject asked for water and 10 minutes to gather his thoughts. Once he drank the water, he was ready to climb down the ladder provided by fire personnel. Henning said the subject fits the description of a suspect in an earlier criminal mischief complaint wherein some bathroom fixtures were ripped from the wall in a building on Swan Street.
