Man arrested for bail breach after attempting to climb down Auckland high rise

Police arrested a 34-year-old man for breaching his electronically monitored bail after receiving multiple reports of a person climbing down the outside of a high rise hotel in Auckland’s CBD on Monday.

A video posted to social media platform TikTok shows a man scaling the outside of the Barclay Suites building.

Police confirmed they attended the scene on Albert Street at around 2pm on Monday and arrested the man.

In the video, the man is shown moving along the outside of the building, standing on the outside of balconies. He then hangs down and places his feet on the balcony below.

The video suggests he is around 13 storeys high.

Three police cars can be seen in attendance, with one officer running into the building.

The Barclay Suites is not a managed isolation quarantine facility (MIQ).

A woman working at the building’s reception told Stuff she wasn’t present for the incident, but understood it occurred between 1.45pm and 2.15pm yesterday.
