A suave New York City conman who allegedly once posed as the scion of a wealthy Jamaican family threatened to jump from a 20th-floor window of a Manhattan skyscraper Wednesday as the FBI attempted to serve a search warrant, police sources said.

Ian Mitchell, 35 — who authorities say launched the shady scheme back in 2015 — broke the window inside an apartment within the 72-story CitySpire condominium building and attempted to climb out around 8:40 a.m., the sources said.

Video from the scene shows Mitchell with his legs dangling from the window as people stand outside watching and filming. Police can be heard telling the bystanders to either get inside the building or move down the block.

The NYPD’s Emergency Services Unit arrived on scene and attempted to speak with the man, according to sources.

The nature of the FBI warrant is unknown. A spokesman would only confirm the following:

 “We are conducting a law enforcement operation pursuant to an ongoing investigation.”
