BALTIMORE (AP) - Authorities say a man who fell through the roof of a dilapidated vacant building in west Baltimore while fleeing police again avoided arrest by secretly escaping a house as firefighters worked to rescue him.

Baltimore City Fire Department spokesman Capt. Roman Clark said the suspect, who became trapped in the vacant dwelling Sunday morning, was nowhere to be found after rescue crews searched the property. Clark says he has “no idea at all” how the man escaped.

Authorities said Sunday that officers were trying to arrest the man for suspected drug activity when he took off on foot, climbing onto the roof of a nearby building.
