A man believed to have been in a stolen vehicle who was threatening to jump from the third story of a building in South of Market has been taken into custody, police have reported.
The man was allegedly driving a white Highlander without license plates when California Highway Patrol pulled him over around 2:41 p.m. and sat him down on a curb near Bryant and Dore streets, Officer Vu Williams said.
The man then stood up and ran away from the scene, into a building at 385 10th Street where he hung his body halfway out of a third-story window, authorities said.
Around 4 p.m., four people who appear to be police could be seen attempting to resolve the situation on a fire escape.
Tenth Street between Harrison and Folsom streets was blocked off. Police and California Highway Patrol have responded to the incident.
