Domestic violence suspect found on rooftop

The suspect in a domestic violence incident was arrested Sunday on a rooftop after hiding for hours from Cleveland police.

On Sunday at 3 a.m., police received a call informing them of a domestic violence situation.

Police searched throughout the day for the suspect, who had gone into hiding.

Family members of the domestic victim called police when they spotted the suspect in a building located at West 50th and Fanta.

SWAT teams were called to search the building where the suspect hid because it was too large for police to investigate.

The suspect surrendered peacefully.
