ROCKFORD – Rockford police have arrested a 32-year-old man they say tried to rob a bank while naked.

The Rockford Register Star reports police said Ezekial Deanda approached a personal banker on Friday “while completely disrobed.” They say he then demanded money.

Police say Deanda fled the lobby area with an unspecified amount of cash. He was later found in the bank’s basement restroom, where he was getting dressed.

Deanda is charged with robbery, resisting a police officer and aggravated battery of a police officer.
