Gay Man Forced To Run Home Naked After Clothes Stolen During Outdoor Hookup

Police are cautioning sexual thrill-seekers after a naked man was seen running through the streets of Manchester after all his clothes and possessions had been stolen during a failed outdoor hookup.

The victim, who had met another man in a bar, says he removed his suit and underwear, wallet, phone and keys on a towpath near Canal Street before the thief grabbed his belongings and fled the scene.


A passerby called police after seeing the naked man near the New Union Hotel.

The offender was described as white, between 20 and 25 years old, and wearing a black tracksuit top and bottoms.

“This isn’t about blaming the victim, it’s a reminder to be aware of your surroundings and thinking about putting yourself in an obviously vulnerable position,” said GMP city centre inspector Phil Spurgeon.
