Who is the naked Ring perp?

That is the question that residents of St. Charles, Missouri are wondering after Ring security cameras caught a tall, tattooed man going door-to-door in the nude.

"The St. Charles Police Department is searching for a suspicious man who went door to door overnight wearing no clothes or shoes," reports Fox2Now News. The naked man is seen on multiple home security cameras.

Police are asking for the public's help in tracking down the man. The man was caught on Ring doorbell video wearing nothing as he walks up to a home in St. Charles. Some residents said they were surprised when they woke up early Thursday morning to a naked man on their front door steps.

"I looked at the ring system, and I'm like, 'There is a naked guy on my front porch,'" said Lori Karasek. "That's when I woke up my husband, he got dressed and went out to look for him, and we called the police."

She continued: "I don't really know what to think because I thought, you know, maybe he was drunk or in some kind of a fight, but he's walking up just normally and doesn't seem to be agitated or slurring or doing any kind of weird thing. But I was taken aback."

"It's unusual for someone to be knocking on anyone's door at 1 in the morning," Lt. Tom Wilkison for the St. Charles Police Department told Fox2Now News. "The fact that the person had no clothes on, as cold it was, certainly concerns us and the surrounding neighborhood. He came up to people's front porches, the man did not say anything and was not trying to force entry into anything, we are not sure what his intentions were."

Authorities didn't actually show the man's face but thought someone might recognize several tattoos across his left shoulder. He also had a flat top buzz haircut. Police say the man could face a charge of indecent exposure.

"It's not funny," Wilkison added. "And it makes people very uneasy to see someone walking around with no clothes on at 1 o'clock in the morning. No one knows what his intentions are. If this is a prank, it certainly is not fun."
