Cops say that an emotionally disturbed man had specialized police units trying for hours to get him safely out of a Bensonhurst building, where he had perched himself on a window ledge,  on Sunday, November 29.

According to police, the man, who had barricaded himself inside of a building at 8484 Bay Parkway, was refusing to open the door to police at around 1:26 p.m.
