A man is in custody accused of trying to break into a northeast Houston discount food store, through the roof.
Police said the owner of the Family Discount Foods store on 8805 Homestead and Leighton called 9-1-1 after noticing a man inside.
The woman noticed the man on the store's security cameras.
After officers arrived, they called the fire department, so they could use a ladder truck to get to the roof.
The man was caught and taken into custody.
He suffered several scratches and had to be treated at the scene by paramedics.
No word on what the man was trying to steal.
