Owatonna Police Talk Man Off Rooftop
Owatonna police talked a man off a rooftop recently after an alleged violation of an Order of Protection violation, according to the department's Just the Facts newsletter. The incident began when a female victim reported the man contacted her daughter. Officers confirmed an Order was in place for the action by the suspect.
Police went to State Avenue in Owatonna after a witness reported seeing the man. "Inside the unit, officers saw the suspect crawl out a window onto a rooftop. The officers negotiated with the suspect over the course of the next 45 minutes to come down from the roof." After he complied, officers arrested 27-year-old Trayantay Jones of Owatonna and charged him with Violating a Domestic Abuse Order for Protection, a felony.
