VERNON, B.C. — It was a bizarre Friday afternoon in downtown Vernon as RCMP had to deal with a naked man who had rammed his vehicle right into a downtown business. The suspect was easy to apprehend as his clothing description was actually...nothing. He was transported to hospital for an assessment of his medical condition.

The man crashed his 1996 Jeep Cherokee SUV into The Kush organic clothing and cosmetic store on 31st Street Friday afternoon, before climbing naked out of the vehicle and walking down 30th Avenue

The frustrated male, according to officers on the scene, tried to rob the store and attempted twice to carjack other vehicles in order to try and flee the area.

Cpl. Dan Moskaluk said it was lucky there were no injuries to pedestrians or the customers in the store.
