NEW YORK (AP) — Authorities say a young daredevil who climbed the World Trade Center’s centerpiece tower in 2014 has been arrested on top of another Manhattan high-rise.
Police say 19-year-old Justin Casquejo (kahs-KAY’-hoh) of Weehawken, New Jersey, was arrested Thursday night at the Paramount Tower apartment building on East 39th Street.
Casquejo was accused of accessing the roof without permission and hanging off a ledge. He was awaiting a court appearance Friday.
Casquejo also was arrested in December after videos posted on social media showed him dangling from buildings and scaffolding near Central Park.
His attorney, Jeremy Saland (suh’-LAND’), says they look forward to addressing the charges in court after reviewing the allegations.
