The man known so far as "Steve from Virginia" led police on a cat and mouse chase up the side of Trump Tower in New York City Wednesday afternoon and into the evening.

It appears that "Steve" posted a video online possibly outlining his plan and intentions.

Check it out here:


The video, posted to YouTube Tuesday afternoon, shows a man that looks like the climber talking about why he planned to climb Trump Tower.

While ABC News has not confirmed that the man in the video is the climber, a high ranking police source tells our sister WABC there is "no reason to believe it's not him."

Police tell ABC News that the video is being investigated.
