Grandpa Throws Intruder Off Roof After Hours-Long Standoff

An 83-year-old grandfather ended an hours-long standoff after he pushed an intruder off of the roof of his California house.

On Sept. 12, Wilford Burgess propelled the unidentified suspect into the air after he caught him jumping from roof to roof in his La Puente neighborhood.

According to KABC, Burgess became agitated at the five-hour ordeal after he received a phone call from his daughter at church, and decided to grab his neighbor’s ladder and resolve the matter himself.

“That sucker’s coming off,” Burgess reportedly told the police deputies and crisis negotiators at the scene.
