Flasher Sparks Concern In North Raleigh

Posted April 24, 2001 3:43 a.m. EDT

— Some residents in a North Raleigh apartment complex are on edge lately. One woman says she had a run-in with a naked man who tried to break into her home.

Christie Carlson was sitting at the computer in her Laurel Oaks apartment when a stranger walked onto her first floor porch and peered through the glass door. When the stranger saw her, he ran. But, moments later, she says he returned and tried to open the locked door.

"He was completely naked, wearing nothing but his baseball cap and his shoes," Carlson says.

When Carlson filed a police report, they told her Laurel Oaks Apartments is not the only place where this has been happening. They told her there have been similar reports in other parts of that neighborhood.

Anyone with any information should call the Raleigh Police Department.
