Mystery of naked man on highway

2014-10-03 00:00

REPORTS of a mysterious naked man crawling on the highway had police on the run yesterday morning.

But the police apparently drove to the wrong destination while searching for him. They drove to Century Road when in fact, according to reports, the man was seen running around the N3 off-ramp towards Church Street.

A policeman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, confirmed that the police drove around and found nothing.

Meanwhile, the mystery man remains at large and his fate is still unknown — if he even existed. It is not known if he was a figment of someone’s imagination.

“It looks like it was a prank. It’s not normal for a person to walk naked publicly. Maybe he was robbed of his clothes,” said a policeman.

Anyone seen the man? Let us know.
