Footage Shows Hiding Suspect Falling Through Ceiling Onto Police Officers

Footage Shows Hiding Suspect Falling Through Ceiling Onto Police Officers

Footage has emerged of a man falling through the ceiling of a house, right on to the police officers trying to find him.

The suspect was reportedly hiding from police in the attic of a house, but stepped on a weak spot in the ceiling and fell through, with his leg dangling above one of the officers who was looking for him.

Capturing the whole thing on camera was Matty Walsh, 24, who was at a party with some friends when he heard banging on the door.

On hearing the unexpected visitors shouting 'police', he realised one of the group had vanished.

He said that he had no idea who the man was, how he got there, or where he went when the police knocked on the door in Rochdale, Manchester.

But he said the police came in and declared they were looking for an alleged suspect - before there was a loud creak from the ceiling.

A hole appeared in the ceiling and plaster rained down on the police officer as a man's leg appeared through the newly-formed gap.

Matty, from Rochdale, Manchester, said: "We heard a cracking and the police said, 'Who's in the roof?'

"The next thing, a foot comes in and the plaster comes down and almost hits the copper on the head.

"There was no way out and he came down when they went to get him, there was no way out so he just gave up.

"We were all having a laugh about it, I don't know what the coppers thought of it."

Matty, a builder, said he realised what was happening and filmed the incident, which occurred on 31 May, to put on Snapchat.

A spokesperson for Greater Manchester Police confirmed that a man had been arrested at the party following an earlier domestic assault

They said: "Shortly after 2am on Saturday 1 June, officers responded to reports of a domestic assault in Rochdale.

"A male was detained at a nearby house in Ennerdale Road and arrested on suspicion of assault and breaching a restraining order."

You could say he really put his foot in it (sorry).
