Naked man baffles cops

When police pulled up to the 900-block of Bay Street Monday, they found what they were expecting, yet not quite what they were hoping for.

Indeed, there was a naked man walking down the street.

A concerned woman tried to cover the man's parts with a towel, but the towel didn't stay.

Asked by officers why he was walking around nude, the man retorted, asking why they were wearing clothes.

The only way to solve the paradox, the police officers decided, was to check the naked man into hospital for a mental health assessment.
