How to Make a Perfect Ice Cream Sandwich

Cool down with a homemade ice cream sandwich!

I scream, you scream, we all scream when we’re dangling precariously from a building.

A robbery suspect in New York City was left clinging to the side of a building in East Harlem after allegedly stealing eight pints of Häagen-Dazs ice cream and then trying to flee from cops with his ill-gotten goods.

Police with NYC’s 23rd Precinct shared news of the incident on Tuesday, along with a photo of the suspect resting on a small ledge high above the alleyway.

“After stealing 8 pints of Häagen-Dazs from a local business, this man’s getaway didn’t go as planned,” police wrote on Twitter. “We found him, rescued him & brought a safe conclusion to this precarious icecapade in #EastHarlem.”

The suspect, identified as 30-year-old Anthony L. Pastore of Staten Island, had allegedly stolen the ice cream from a nearby CVS at around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, according to police.

“When the officers arrived, they observed an individual matching the description who then ran into a courtyard at 98 Street and Lexington Avenue. The individual climbed over a fence that lead to a long drop to an alleyway below and tried to get down but got stuck on a small ledge,” NYPD Detective Annette Shelton confirmed in a statement shared with Fox News.

When officers searched the suspect’s backpack, they actually found 10 cartons of Häagen-Dazs, and not eight, as previously reported, according to the statement.
