No information on man, who had head injuries

Grand Junction police are investigating why a man climbed onto the roof of a Main Street bicycle shop early Wednesday morning and jumped off when officers tried to contact him.

Police didn’t release any information about the man, who was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital with serious head injuries following his three-story plunge.

A security guard working downtown called 911 at 3:15 a.m. to report seeing a man climb a roof access ladder on the back side of Ruby Canyon Cycles, 301 Main St., police spokeswoman Kate Porras said.

Officers arrived and set up a perimeter around the building. One officer saw the man looking over the edge of the building into the south alley of Main Street. When the officer identified himself, the man ran to the north side of the building, Porras said.

An officer on that side of the building then saw the man jump from the roof and fall to the sidewalk. The man may have been trying to jump into or grab onto a tree, Porras said.

She said police don’t know what the man was doing on the roof, noting officers didn’t find any burglary tools or evidence that he was trying to break into the business.

“We are certainly going to try to figure that out,” Porras said.
