MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police in Minneapolis said a man who allegedly broke into a business last week, fell off a roof and broke his pelvis.

Officers got a call about a burglary at a business in the 2900 block of Hennepin Ave. South.

A witness said they saw a man on top of the roof of a business. He was using a large cement brick to break out a window.

He went inside the building then left about a minute later.

As he was crawling across the roof, the witness yelled up and asked him what he was doing up there.

The burglar said he was coming down, but instead lost his balance and fell 20 feet to the ground.

Police arrived and found the man lying on the ground. He was brought to Hennepin County Medical Center to be treated for a fractured pelvis.

Police said the man was released pending complaint due to his serious injury.
