LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas police say a naked man broke into a northeast Las Vegas home.

Police say the naked man went into the home on Sunday without the owner’s permission.

The homeowner ran out of the residence, leaving the man inside alone.

The man later got onto the roof and refused to come down.

Lt. Grant Rogers says the man is mentally ill.

Police say SWAT negotiators were called and the man was later taken into custody.
