CLARKSVILLE, TN - Investigators with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office have completed their inquiry into an unclothed man seen on video on February 2nd near the Prince Drive area of Clarksville.
Officials say, after interviewing the man, reviewing videos, and examining medical history, it is believed his actions on the night of February 2nd stem from a medical condition.
The man has no criminal history and investigators found no criminal intent in his actions.
Investigators do not believe the man poses an immediate danger to the community and because of the circumstances, the man's name is not being released.
The Sheriff's Office will continue to follow up with the man's family to help prevent this from happening again.
The homeowners who provided the video have chosen not to press charges considering the circumstances surrounding the incident.
UPDATE (5:28pm): Clarksville Police say the man has been identified.
NASHVILLE, Tenn.--You might call him the Birthday Suit Bandit.
Natalie Hall of the Clarksville Police Department says "he's walking around naked. In the video it shows that he tried to open the door." But it's no laughing matter for homeowners near Wilson Point subdivision.
Debbie Nunn says "it's kind of scary. I hope he was disoriented and found his way where he was going. Maybe something is wrong with him?" Other neighbors like Megan Wilson are surprised. "It's not something you would expect in the dead of winter or even in this neighborhood it's definitely a surprise."
Police say on different nights, the nude man attempted to get into homes on Prince Drive, East Regent and Trelawny Drive. Nunn thinks she's seen him before. "I know I've seen him walking in the neighborhood not like that but I've seen him walking in the neighborhood. With his clothes on. But they'll catch him because somebody's going to identify him."
That's exactly what police are hoping to uncover. Natalie Hall says "we're just trying to figure out what's going on with him. We want to get him identified. If he needs help we can help with that we just want to put a stop to what's going on out there."
If you recognize the man or can help identify him, contact the Clarksville Police Department at 931-648-0656 Ext 5144 or the CrimeStoppers TIPS Hotline at 931-645-TIPS (8477).
