A would-be home invader took to the rooftops to try to evade police about 8 p.m. Sunday, but was finally cornered by police and a homeowner who used a ladder to get up to the fleeing man’s level.

Baytown police spokesman Sgt. John Butler said a 35-year-old Houston man, Dustin Hendricks, was charged with evading detention.
