Naked Man Surprises Pasadena Woman (Not in a Good Way)

A Pasadena woman trying to be a good sport by helping out a man asking her some questions from a parked car was given what the Star-News is politely calling "an unpleasant surprise." That surprise? He was naked, except for a baseball cap. On his head.

Authorities say the man, thought to be white or Hispanic and between 20 and 30 years old, waved the woman over near California Boulevard and Catalina Avenue at around 4 p.m. yesterday. He was seated inside his vehicle, which was a "yellowish or beige older-model sedan." Once the woman got close, she realized he did not have any clothes on.

Before driving off, the man made an unspecified comment to the woman and laughed.

While some women might appreciate the surprise of a naked man in the right context, let's say a Bachelorette party stripper, at Coachella, or a well-intentioned significant other in the privacy of home, in a parked car on a public street is not the way to go. (Also, as Dr. Phil learned, having one run through a house of women he was "helping" did not actually help.)

Ladies of Pasadena, and elsewhere, beware of this and other shady fellas in parked cars.
