Shoppers Brawl With Completely Naked Man In Seattle JCPenney

Posted October 10, 2023 by with 13 comments

There are still JCPenney stores in existence? And, even more shocking, there are people who still shop there? Next you’re gonna tell me there are still Montgomery Wards and The Broadways. Fun side note: Anyone remember Bullock’s? I worked at one in South Coast Plaza (Orange County) in 1997 for barely three months, and it was one of my first jobs. Hooked up with a co-worker in a dressing room and ended up getting laid off after the holidays, sadly. But, I digress.

It’s not clear what led to this man being completely naked, but the clip posted below from a Twitter account covering viral videos in Washington state claims the man was allegedly attempting to touch people’s children inside a JCPenney store in Tukwila’s Southcenter Mall, just south of Seattle. Note that it gets a little violent near the end before one of the vigilante parents is restrained and the video cuts off:


A local news reporter in Seattle replied to the video tweet, as seen below, and he confirmed with Tukwila police that the man was arrested after having a “mental crisis.”
