Naked or not, come out with your hands up


River Falls police officers chased a local 27-year-old man who appeared to be masturbating by the EconoFoods recycling bins last Tuesday around 1:30 a.m. The suspect took off and ran down the slope to Lake George through tangled underbrush. There he hid. This occurred after 1:30 a.m. last Tuesday.

A Pierce County sheriff's deputy and his dog were summoned. The suspect finally agreed to give up, but he wanted a blanket first to cover himself because he was without pants.
