CLAYTON – Clayton Police need your help identifying a sometimes half-naked man who’s been seen walking around a Clayton neighborhood in the last few evenings.

Home security video captured the man, believed to be in his 20s or 30s, walking across front and side yards in the Riverwood Athletic Club neighborhood.

He was spotted wearing a ball cap, blue sweatshirt/jacket, light blue shorts, white socks and black shoes.

He is seen walking directly across driveways near front doors.  In other footage he is clearly not wearing shorts and can be seen crouching down near a backyard grill.

He was last spotted last Saturday night on Hutson Lane around 11 p.m.

Clayton Police are asking anyone who may have seen this man or might recognize him from the footage to call 911 or reach out to the Clayton Police Department at 919-553-4611 or info@TownofClaytonNC.org
