Suspect scales house, falls off roof in chase with Winnipeg police

Winnipeg police say a suspect they allege was found with heroin was hurt after he fell from a roof following a foot chase on Monday.

It happened around 1:15 p.m., when police say they spotted a person of interest driving in the 300 block of Simcoe Street.

Officers tried to stop the vehicle, but the driver took off at high speed, before crashing into a light post at St. Matthews Avenue and Simcoe Street.

The driver ran into a yard, scaled a house to the roof and tried to jump onto a neighbouring roof — but fell to the ground.

Police found the 20 grams of heroin/fentanyl and $75, and the suspect was taken to hospital and treated for his injuries.
