COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police believe they have caught a man known as the “naked photographer,” who is accused of sneaking up on women while wearing little more than a baseball cap and photographing their shocked expressions.
Officers arrested a naked man late Wednesday night in an alley behind a supermarket near where a woman reported being confronted. The man was not identified immediately.
The woman said she was getting out of her car at an apartment complex on the city’s northwest side when she was approached by a naked man. She said he snapped her picture and ran away without touching her.
It was the 39th incident in which a naked man ambushed women and snapped photos. Police believe he keeps the pictures as souvenirs.
