Salt Kettle Way/Google EarthUpdated, 6:42 p.m. Tuesday:

Fairfax County Police said a teenager was walking along the patch near Salt Kettle Way and Ridge Heights Drive and saw an adult male completely nude, with his hands near his groin area about 1 p.m. on Tuesday.

The victim ran and the suspect fled prior to police arrival. Officers checked the area with assistance from the helicopter, but the suspect was not located, police said.

The suspect was described as a white male, pale skin, a lean build, between 40 to 50 years of age and gray hair.

Original story, 4:30 p.m. Tuesday: South Lakes High School principal Kim Retzer is warning students and parents to beware of a naked man seen near the school today.

Retzer sent this email to SLHS families:

A SLHS student reported today that she observed an adult male not wearing any clothes in the park playground area across from the school around 12:45 p.m.

The student reported this incident to us when she arrived at school and our office contacted Fairfax County Police.  The police department is investigating and searching for this individual.

As the new school year approaches, this is an opportunity to remind your son or daughter to be aware of their surroundings and avoid any seemingly dangerous situation.  Students should travel in pairs to and from school and bus stops whenever possible, and immediately report to an adult any suspicious activity.

    Everyone with a cell phone should have this number ready to dial: non-emergency police line is 703-691-2131.

      If you see a naked man in a playground, that’s an emergency.

      I have called the police to report fully clothed men in playgrounds who merely seemed creepy to me.

        Is there a number you can provide for air aupport?

          Connie seems a little hyper to me. I pity her kids.

          Does Fairfax One have a weapons system yet? Where are my tax dollars going?

    • Sigrid Snyder

      For what it’s worth, I’d rather see a naked man than a man with a gun!
      While both should be reigned in, the “No gun guy” would be the lesser evil!

  • ducatination

    The description leads me to question if this guy was a perv or in some psychotic state. Hands near groin area could mean that he was merely covering his genitals or could be rather nefarious. I’ve heard of flashers, but naked path walker, never…

      Check to see if all your bananas are at home. If not, call air support. Thx

    We should deport him! Wait he’s not Spanish so it’s not a big deal right Ming the merciless ?

    • Ming the Merciless

      Ming believes in deporting deviates of all races and nationalities. The bottom of the ocean, the ice kingdom of Polaria, the Iridium mines on Antares 3… the possible destinations are limited only by Ming’s imagination.

    • Ming the Merciless

      Ming also notes that the existence of native-born crime in no way invalidates the principle of deporting criminal aliens. Every crime committed by an alien is the totally unnecessary and entirely preventable product of government negligence.

    • Rex Kramer

      I could not agree more.. Deportation should be used in all cases. No matter what your race, religion, or metal status. If you can’t conform, obey the laws, or keep your clothes on. You should be forced out of the country. Go live in Venezuela you hippy.
