Police are working to identify a man found wandering naked through the woods Sunday afternoon.Mahwah Chief James N. Batelli said that at around noon, the department received a call from someone who observed the unknown man walking through a forested area off of Route 202, close to a Route 17 on-ramp. Officers found him nearby, but unclothed and covered in mud.
The man could not provide information on his identity or where he was from, and was taken to Bergen Regional Medical Center for an evaluation.
Batelli said he had no signs of a head trauma or injury that could have caused the memory loss. A search of the wooded area yielded clothes police believe could belong to the man, but they contained no identifying documents or other information.
Police released a photo of the man Sunday night in hopes of identifying him. Anyone who knows him is asked to contact Mahwah Police.
