Joy Estill went to use a Seattle Central Community College restroom. She was rather surprised to find a man falling in through the ceiling.
“My initial reaction was ‘Do you need help?’ — I thought he was a worker,” Estill told KOMO-TV, Seattle.
“But then I realized he was not dressed like a worker doing labor; he was dressed like a regular person coming off the street.”
Estill and other students held the man until security arrived and handcuffed him.
He allegedly had a disposable camera in his hand, which led Estill to believe he was taking pictures.
Police, however, said that the man was only hiding from officers after earlier trying to break into a locked bathroom in a fast food restaurant using a pocketknife.
Police said he fled from officers at the college and climbed into the bathroom ceiling to hide.
Investigators have not decided what charges the man may face.
