Patrol police car.

San Diego police were called to the home on Coast Walk around 4:45 a.m. by a resident who heard a noise and saw someone on the roof of the house.


A 26-year-old man who San Diego police said was found on the roof of a La Jolla house was arrested early Oct. 26 on suspicion of burglary.

Officers were called after a resident heard noises coming from the roof and saw a man atop the house on Coast Walk off Torrey Pines Road around 4:45 a.m., said police Officer Tony Martinez.

Officer Scott Robinson said the intruder apparently went through the home before ending up on the roof. It wasn’t clear why he entered the home.

Police set up a perimeter around the house and eventually made contact with the suspect, who was arrested around 6:15 a.m. ◆
