A 19-year-old Brooklyn man was chased by police though city streets, apparently leaving his clothes behind. The police were trying to arrest him on an outstanding warrant, but the young man fled instead – completely nude. “He was completely naked!” a witness who saw the events transpire told a New York Criminal Lawyer.
Police came to the young man’s Kingston Ave. home in Crown Heights at about 8:30 a.m. and woke him from his sleep. They supplied him with a blanket when they realized he was naked. Without warning, he ran from his apartment, leaving the blanket behind.
Many onlookers found the four-block chase amusing, while others were shocked and startled. One police officer was injured during the pursuit when he fell through a metal sidewalk grate. He dropped approximately 10 feet to land in a Dean St. basement.
“He falls through – one minute there, one minute gone,” exclaimed a witness to a New York Criminal Lawyer. “It was like a magic trick!” The injured officer was taken to Wyckoff Heights Medical Center in stable condition.
There were not only several officers on foot involved in the chase, but an NYPD van, as well. The young man tried to hide in a friend’s basement, where he was finally apprehended by police, according to a New York Criminal Lawyer.
