Man gets naked before robbing pizza restaurant

TOWSON, Md. - A man was captured on video robbing a pizza restaurant naked.

Authorities released the surveillance video, with the inappropriate parts covered out, reported The Washington Post on Monday (Nov 21).

Restaurant owner Yianni Rizas said: "Seeing it was weird. Knowing someone was running around naked in the store."

Police in Baltimore County said the incident happened about 6am- when the store was closed- on Nov 10. The man made his way through the roof of Slice Pizza on West Pennsylvania Avenue, police said.

Once inside, police said, he took his clothes off, possibly because he had ripped his pants on the roof.

Inside the restaurant, the man tried to cover himself using what appears to be a shirt. At one point, the shirt is on his head, and he is seen on the video throwing items around.

Police said he took cash from the registers before fleeing.

On Monday, police said they had arrested Jonathan K. Newman, 23, and charged him with second-degree burglary and other counts.

Police said Newman was released on US$50,000 (S$71,000) bail.
