N.Y. Police ID Trump Tower Climber

The New York Police Department has identified the man who scaled the glass facade of the Trump Tower using large suction cups.

The NYPD said Aug. 11 that the climber was 19-year-old Stephen Rogata, of Great Falls, Virginia. He was arrested on charges of reckless endangerment and criminal trespass.

Police had previously said he was 20.

The man had said he was seeking “a private audience” with Donald Trump, though it’s not clear what he wanted to discuss. He spent hours scaling the building Aug. 10 before police grabbed him through a window on the 21st floor.

The tower is headquarters to Trump’s Republican Presidential campaign and his business empire. Trump also lives there, though he was away Aug. 10.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Rogata has an attorney.
