A woman who broke into a Stamford home and remained on its roof for about six hours was finally brought down to safety Wednesday evening.
Police officers and first responders spent hours communicating with the woman from a floor below at the home in Shippan Point along Saddle Rock Road.
The homeowner says the woman walked in an unlocked door blasting music around 1 p.m. and started throwing things.
“I was trying to talk to her like, ‘Whats your name?’” says homeowner Keith Crook. “She was like … ‘I’m Lucifer.’”
Crook, his son and people painting the house were inside when she yelled at them to get out.
Crook told his 20-year-old son to call 911, and they were able to get out safely after trying to reason with the woman. Crook says while they evacuated, the woman got more belligerent.
"She didn't say she was going to kill me, but she said, because my dog came up to be patted in the middle of this, and then she said, 'OK I won't kill your dog.' "So it's like an implied kind of, well what would you kill then?" says Crook.
By the time police arrived, the woman made her way to the roof, where she was for hours, only getting up every so often to stretch.
The situation came to an end when a first responder spoke to her and distracted her while another was able to bring her down to safety. Dozens of first responders were on the scene.
Friends and family of the woman were also at the home, trying to talk her down from the roof.
Information about the woman's identity and any possible charges weren't immediately announced.
