Naked man found on Cortez Road in Bradenton

A Bradenton man was seen naked around 3 p.m. Wednesday on the corner of Cortez Road and 76th Street.

According to neighbors, the naked man’s van was in the middle of 76th Street near his residence when he started to strip, yell and walk toward Cortez Road.

Neighbors speculated his behavior was caused by a heat stroke.

“Usually, it’s a nice neighborhood,” said neighbor Ana Aragones. “Quiet.”

A passerby gave the man a sheet, which he wore to cover his backside.

Manatee County Sheriff’s Office said an investigation is ongoing.
