ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A man sleeping on the roof at Bush Animal Clinic on Dawson Road, called police on himself Wednesday morning saying he had cut his hand on glass while breaking in through a window.

When WALB News 10 arrived on the scene around 3:45 the ambulance was just pulling away, but Albany firefighters were on the roof, removing clothes and cigarettes the suspect had been using up there.

The man told police he was running away from someone around 9 Tuesday night and had climbed up a fence and onto the roof to hide.

Then, around 3:30 the man told police he needed to use the phone. That's when he broke through a back window and cut his hand on the glass.

Veterinarian Dr. Steve Whatley says nothing surprises him anymore. He plans on getting some type of large watch dog now just in case someone tries to camp out on his roof or break in again.

Nothing was taken from the clinic, but the suspect did leave behind broken glass and blood from his accident.
