Police called the fire services, who used their truck's ladder to access the roof.

Det Snr Sgt Moon said fire and police officers went onto the roof and located the man above Yummy Noodles.

He said the man appeared to be suffering some sort of illness so an ambulance was called.

The man was transported to the Rockhampton Hospital.

He is still under arrest, but has not been charged yet.
