Pant-less man tracked by K9, arrested

Seattle Police officers were dispatched to the 300 block of North 105th Street just after midnight on May 12 following reports of a half naked man loitering in the shrubs. A 20-year-old-woman made the call. She told police that while walking on the sidewalk a man naked from the waist down jumped out at her and told her he had a gun. She immediately pulled out her small pocketknife to scare off the man. She ran after him and threw rocks. The naked man climbed over a fence nearby. The woman showed officers where she had chased him. The K9 Ziva and Officer Mark Wong tracked the man to some bushes not a block from where the incident occurred. The 34-year-old man was found still not wearing pants. He was booked at King County Jail for lewd conduct.
