New York - Police say a naked man shouting about presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump jumped off the back of a large grandstand in Times Square above the booth where discounted Broadway tickets are sold.

Police say the man was conscious after the jump of about 4m off the TKTS booth. They say the man sustained a cut on his elbow and was in stable condition when taken to a hospital. Officials say he'll undergo psychiatric evaluation.

Police say officers were trying to talk the man down from the iconic red stairs over the ticket booth when he jumped on Thursday at about 08:00.

The man fell to the ground, missing an emergency air bag set up by first responders.

The man had been shouting "Donald Trump where are you?"

Police say the man had earlier been spotted a few blocks away.
