A 25 year old male was restrained and forcefully removed from the roof of a home in Mt View, Verulam on Friday 30 November 2018.

Members of Reaction Unit South Africa who responded to a distress call from a frantic resident on Mt View Drive found a violent male on the roof of the single storey home. The man appeared intoxicated and refused to climb down. When approached, the man removed his shirt and requested Reaction Officers to shoot him.

Officers made several attempts to calm him down and talked the male into climbing off the roof. After a short while Reaction Officers climbed the building and managed to handcuff the man. He was then carried off the roof.

The resident did not desire a criminal case and the drug user was released to his father who arrived on scene a short while later.
