Cops responded to a call Monday evening in Ajax for a report of a naked man dancing on a neighbour’s lawn.
A 22-year-old man was arrested during the incident, at a residence on Chapman Drive at about 7 p.m. Aug. 13, Durham police said.
Officers were called to the area by a resident complaining of a disturbance, Const. George Tudos said.
“There was a naked man dancing in the yard,” Tudos said. “Then he broke into a neighbour’s house and caused a disturbance.”
The man, who was streaked with feces, struggled with a civilian who tried to stop him, police said. He was arrested for a mental health assessment before being charged.
“It’s believed he was under the influence of some sort of narcotics,” Tudos said.
The man, whose name was not released, is charged with mischief, assault and being unlawfully in a dwelling.
