A man is facing charges after police say he climbed up a downtown construction crane on Monday, prompting a two-hour stand off with Guelph police.

Police got a call from an alarm company about someone forcing his way into a construction site on Baker Street, at around 8 p.m.

When they got there, officers saw the man at the top of the crane. Police said they negotiated with the man for two hours before he climbed down.

A 49-year-old Guelph man is charged with break and enter and mischief.
