TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Police are searching for a man who ripped a urinal off the wall of a Tallahassee restaurant and, when confronted by employees, stripped naked and ran into the woods.

The Tallahassee Police Department posted about the odd incident on Facebook Tuesday morning.

They said that they were called to a local restaurant about a man damaging property. When they arrived, police found that the restaurant was flooded. Employees told them that a man in his 20s had come into the restaurant and ripped a urinal off of the wall, causing the flooding. 

When employees confronted the man, police said he did what any person who ripped a urinal off the wall would do: he stripped naked and ran into the woods. 

"A grown man running around naked is certainly going to attract more attention than whatever he was wearing prior to," the Tallahassee Police Department said in the Facebook post.

Though the suspect was able to get away, video of the suspect was turned over to TPD, and police say they expect officers from their criminal investigations bureau to identify the man soon.

"I hope he finds clothing before they arrive," TPD wrote. "Awwwwwkward!"

Police have redacted the man's description.
