A man who collapsed to his death from an apartment tower in the city of Melbourne has been revealed as a wanted criminal known to the police.
Police believe that the man, who fell from the balcony of the 63-story EQ Tower Friday morning, may also have been trying to avoid being captured when he died.
The agents were called to the high-rise tower at A & # 39; Beckett St around 6.25 a.m. after they received a notice about the suspicious behavior of neighbors, The Herald Sun reported.

When they arrived at the building, police found several cars parked outside that were allegedly reported stolen before starting a search in the block.
They chased five people allegedly linked to the stolen cars, before arresting a 25-year-old from Bulleen, a 33-year-old man from Epping and a 40-year-old man from Chadstone.
An unknown woman was persecuted on the scene but she continues to flee, and it is understood that the unidentified man fell off the tower during the chase.
While it is not clear why the man was wanted by the officers, a police source told the Herald Sun that he was "disgusting that he had hurt many people."
Police believe he may have been trying to climb the building to avoid being caught by officers when he slipped and fell.
Two of the arrested men clashed with the Magistrates Court in Melbourne on Saturday morning, while the 40-year-old man from Chadstone remains in custody pending arrest warrants.
Jacky Tran, 25, of Bulleen, was charged with possession of the GHB drug, while Oner Atesok, 33, of Epping, faces additional charges of handling stolen goods.

The court heard that the two men had wanted to request bail, but Magistrate Catherine Lamble advised them not to do so.
"It's not my position to advise him, but you may want to reconsider … anything he says could be denounced," he said.
While Mr. Tran followed his advice and his attention was suspended until Monday, Mr. Atesok requested bail later on the day without legal representation.

When he reappeared on the bench, Mr. Atesok told the court that his life had been "a hell" in the last year.
"Since my life has gone downhill and continues downhill," he said.
But after learning that Mr. Atesok was on bail for vehicular offenses when he was arrested at EQ Tower on Friday, Judge Len Brear denied the man's request.
The court also heard that identity cards and a tomahawk were also found in one of the stolen vehicles linked to Mr. Atesok.
The latest incident in the high-rise apartment comes a few months after Sudanese teenager Laa Chol, 19, was stabbed at a party in July.
