The Sydney police had been looking for the 31-year-old suspect in the home invasions in Rosebury and Waterloo for quite sometime.

When the police officers heard noises coming from the roof, and found the 31-year-old hiding in the attic.

They instructed him to give in, but he defied their order.

Finally, the thief fell through the roof to the waiting police, reports

After a long struggle, police used a capsicum spray to gain control over the man.

The man was then taken to Blacktown Hospital for treatment for a pre-existing cut to his head, where he remains under police guard. (ANI)
