The following information was provided by the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office:
Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office investigators took a step back in time to the 1970s Thursday, July 1 as they were asked to investigate a streaker at an area business, according to Sheriff David Harvey.
Early morning customers at the Crawfordville Wal-Mart got more than they bargained for when the unidentified male streaked through the store with nothing on except two bandanas.
Deputy Nick Gray investigated the 1 a.m. complaint from Assistant Manager Richard Dunn. Witness Kenneth L. Malphurs of Crawfordville reported that he observed a white male, approximately six feet tall and 200 to 220 pounds, running naked with bandanas wrapped around his face.
Malphurs told Deputy Gray that an unidentified customer attempted to stop the streaker by knocking him down as he was leaving the store, but was unable to hold him until law enforcement arrived. Malphurs added that a second clothed male joined the streaker outside the store as they ran south toward Mike Stewart Drive.
Deputy Vicki Mitchell also investigated and determined that at 12:40 a.m. the streaker entered the store with his clothing on before changing out of his clothes in a store restroom. The suspect emerged from the restroom and continued on a two minute streak before leaving the store through a south side exit.
Two black bandanas were recovered in the parking lot of the store.
Video surveillance is also being collected for further investigation.
