ARREST: Southwestern District -- A slightly built man in his 20s was arrested early today after city firefighters freed him from inside the narrow ventilation shaft of Andre's pit beef, deli and pizza in the 2800 block of Wilkens Ave. The man entered the shaft feet first from atop the roof after climbing onto a barrel behind the building. However, he was unable to slip through the narrow opening once inside the building. A woman talking on a telephone near the carryout saw two other men flee from the rear of the building before she spotted the man's feet dangling from the end of the shaft near the work area. She called the police. Officer John Johnson said the man, who was trapped for nearly 30 minutes, denied breaking into the carryout. He reportedly faces burglary charges.
