Nude rooftop thief nicked

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A BIKE shop boss stopped a thief from es­cap­ing by rip­ping off the man’s jeans and BOXER SHORTS.

Ed Neil­son, 34, caught the bur­glar at Cliff Pratt Cy­cles in Hull, East Yorks.

The in­truder had bro­ken in by mak­ing a hole in the roof and was try­ing to pull a bike through it when he was con­fronted.

Mr Neil­son said: “I needed to make sure the po­lice could catch him if he got away, so I pulled off his shoes and his jeans, but his boxer shorts came with them.”

Af­ter show­ing his pe­nis to passers-by dur­ing a 40-minute rooftop stand-off with cops, the man climbed down a lad­der and was ar­rested.
