Police investigating bizarre incident in which man entered two Syracuse homes and died.
According to The Post-Standard, Syracuse police are investigating a strange sequence of events in which a suspect entered two separate homes, took his clothes off, dove out of a window and later died.
Syracuse Police Chief Frank Fowler gave this account of the incident:
At 6:47 a.m. police were called to 1413 W. Colvin St. for a report of a disturbance. A man had been pounding on the door of the West Colvin Street home, where he had known some of the people inside. Once they let him in, he became incoherent, started acting bizarre and took off his clothes.
The suspect then proceeded to walk up to the second floor and dove out of a window “like Superman.”
The suspect then got into a car and drove to another home in the 100 block of Arlington Avenue. He went inside where there was a woman with a baby. She did not know the man, so she grabbed her baby, fled upstairs and called the police.
Police had to force their way inside of the Arlington Avenue home where they found the suspect rolling around the living room. Once they handcuffed the man, they called an ambulance and performed CPR. The suspect was taken to Community Hospital and later died.
Syracuse police are continuing to investigate the incident.
