Naked Preschool Prowler Arrested

The LA Times reports that a "naked preschool prowler" was arrested on Tuesday after this most unusual video emerged. The video, released last week, shows a man lurking through the Centro De Alegria preschool in Boyle Heights. At first the intruder ransacks the place for money and keys, but then the footage takes a strange turn. KTLA reports: "The man is seen wearing only socks and shoes and sexually arousing himself while walking around in circles for several minutes inside an entryway at the facility."

A community member who saw the LAPD-released footage of a security video was able to positively identify the suspect, leading to his arrest. Because the suspect is 15 years old, police are not releasing his name to the public.
