Someone trying to kidnap you is never a fun memory. At least when the alleged kidnapper was nude, it's a good story to tell in years to come.

Last night around midnight, the victim, walking alone, was on Parthenia Street near Wilbur Avenue in Northridge when a car pulled up and began tailing her. Then at one point, the man in the car, stopped, got out and began chasing her. It was only when he caught up to her, trying to grab her, that she noticed he was in the buff -- no word if he was running barefoot or not (it's a special talent)

She escaped into an apartment building to call for help. Police said she was not hurt, but "visibly upset."
