Naked dumpster diver scares woman in Houston

A naked man near a METRORail stop caused a scare for people in north Houston Wednesday morning.

"I was like oh my God," Elizabeth Madera said.

Madera said she thought the naked man walking near the METRORail at Fulton at 610 was a joke.

"Somebody was messing with me," she said. "I was like, no, this is not happening. I'm looking around everywhere."

The man started digging through a trash can and throwing things out, she said.

Madera said things turned dangerous when he charged towards her car.

"He looked at us and started walking to my car," she said. "He bent over and picked up something inside (the dumpster), and he had something sharp in his hand."

Police arrived on the scene and eventually arrested the man.
