Man arrested for appearing naked on another man’s third-floor balcony

By SoraNews24

A disturbing incident occurred in Suzuka City, Mie Prefecture in the late evening of Jan 3. A call came into police that “a naked man was hitting the balcony window” of a 23-year-old male resident’s apartment.

Officers rushed to the scene and confirmed the nude intruder’s presence all the way up on the third floor of the building in 3.4℃ weather. The suspect, who is also believed to be in his 20s, was promptly taken into custody and is currently facing charges of trespassing.

However, the man has not cooperated with investigators and has refused to give his identity or motive for taking off all his clothes and scaling three stories to knock on the window of a stranger’s home.

Japanese netizens were full of theories why this unsettling happening took place.

“Santa’s drunk.”

“That sounds like a Terminator.”

“He was probably hoping for a woman in the apartment.”

“I wonder what kind of drugs you’d have to be on to do that.”

“Maybe he was trying to surprise his girlfriend but couldn’t find the right place from the outside.”

“It’s an alien or time-traveler.”

“That’s just frightening.”

It was also reported that police found the naked man’s clothes and other belongings (none of which revealed his identity) at the scene and that he doesn't live in the building.

It's good was 3.4°C, and not 3.0°C - he could freeze his Fred.

I have a theory. He is another delusional Japanese person, who will not deceive the counseling he needs. He will be thrown in a cell, processes and be back out on the streets within a few weeks.

Speed wins for saying first what we all thought! But albaleo wins for the subtly funniest!
