Cat Helps End Police Standoff

Officers of the California Highway Patrol pulled over car on Wednesday in San Francisco. The police determined that the vehicle had been stolen, and the driver fled from the scene. The unnamed suspect jumped a fence and into a two-story building. He perched on the ledge of a second-floor window and threatened to jump. San Francisco police climbed a fire escape to negotiate with him, and set up mats on the ground beneath him. The standoff lasted several hours. But the turning point was when they brought in the man’s kitty.

The suspect’s cat was brought to the scene by family, Gatpandan said.

The cat “assisted” with “negotiating” the suspect off the ledge, according to Gatpandan, and the cat’s presence was “paramount” in getting him down safely.

The suspect eventually climbed back through the window and into police custody. You can see more pictures from the standoff at the San Francisco Chronicle. -via Buzzfeed
