Olean Police Talk Intoxicated Man Threatening Suicide Down From Roof of Residence

 City of Olean, NY Police Department

02/21/2020- The Olean police responded around 9 p.m. to 117 S. 7th Street in Olean for a report of a male who had a self-inflicted knife wound and was holding the knife to his throat. When police arrived on scene and the male was out on the roof of the residence threatening to kill himself.  The man who appeared to be highly intoxicated stated that he did not want to go to jail and that he was upset about something involving his kids.   

Police learned that the children were inside the home and that he wanted police to shoot him.   The man kept drinking small bottles of liquor while on the roof and threatening to jump off by getting closer to the edge of the roof.  Police continued to talk with the male out front on the roof while police were able to enter the residence through the rear and were able to get the kids safely out of the home. 

Police continued to speak with the man after some time were able to get him to come off the roof and back inside the residence without incident and was able to be safely transported to Olean General Hospital for further treatment and evaluation.
