Milwaukee, Wisconsin - On Tuesday, an unidentified naked man was spotted around 12:25 p.m. taking a stroll along the S. César E. Chávez Drive enduring upper 30 degree plus weather and 7 degree windchills. In the last several days, temperature were reported in the single degits and negative windchill factors making it difficult to enjoy the Winter outdoors due to an Artic cold blast.
Several photos of the naked man on Chávez Drive were posted by Almestica Thangz in Facebook (AT-FB), which began to circulate on the social network. The naked man's photos were tagged to the AT-FB account by another friend, according to AT-FB.
Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA) checked police public reports, FB Milwaukee Police Source page, its police blogger and no mention, if the man was actually located by police to see, if he needed help and whether he was suffering from dementia, mental disability or any other disability.LeStencia Vallejo, a witness told HNNUSA that, she saw him walking towards W. Greenfield Ave. and he started walking back towards W. Lapham. She went to her house and got some pants, t-shirt and a pair of shoes. "I walked and met him towards W. Greenfield Ave. and tried to give him the clothes and he grabbed them. I offered him shoes and he said, he was wearing shoes. He had nothing on! He then tossed the clothes into the snow. I grabbed them and followed him towards W. Lapham. As I was following him 2 police cars pulled up and stopped him. The police were going to put a blanket on him, but the police didn't have one so I gave the officers the clothes and shoes and left. I dont think he was mentally sound. He was just repeating everything I said to him and when the police asked, if he was ok, he just repeated the question back to them. I hope he got help," Vallejo said. Another friend saw the man earlier near W. Michell St., according to Vallejo.
Romeo Rivera also witnessed the naked man incident and says, that he and Vallejo were coming from a local store when they spotted the man walking without clothes. At first, Rivera thought it was some kind of joke, but when he realized that the man showed that he had a mental disability, he decided to quickly go with Vallejo to her home and get some clothes for the helpless man. The naked man wouldn't take the clothes and threw them to the snow, but police arrived to deal with the situation, according to Rivera. If the man would have walked out naked it in the past few days, he might not have survived the frigid Artic cold weather that hit Milwaukee.
