Man wanted for harassment gets naked during police chase

A local man wanted for criminal harassment took off all his clothes when chased by Nelson police officers down Baker Street.

A local man wanted for criminal harassment took off all his clothes when chased by Nelson police officers down Baker Street.

On May 20, police caught up with a man they believe had repeatedly been taunting a Nelson man over the past few days. As soon as he was spotted, he fled on foot with officers pursuing in vehicles and on foot.

“As the suspect ran along the sidewalk he doffed his hat, necklaces, glasses and in time, all of his clothing,” says a release issued by the Nelson Police Department. “The officers eventually engaged the naked, sweating and spitting male in the 400 block of Baker street and completed the arrest.”

The man was taken into custody and continued to behave unpredictably. With the assistance of Nelson Mental Health, the male was delivered to the appropriate health care providers. The man now faces charges of criminal harassment and resisting arrest.
