Milwaukee, WI – Milwaukee police from the 6th District Station were called to the 2900 block of S. Howell Ave. to investigate a nude male standing behind a glass door where children walk by every day near a school. The principal at the Milwaukee Parkside School was alerted about the naked man who lives on the same side of the street where the school is located or just one corner house from it.
A posting on Facebook by Bobby Palacios says, while he was going to work on Tuesday morning around 7:30 a.m., he noticed a man standing naked playing with himself by an open glass door where children walk by to school. Palacios turned around to confront the naked man, but the unidentified man closed the door, according to his FB posting.
Palacios’ wife after dropping him off at work then alerted the principal at Parkside School. According to Palacios, the principal called police who went to the residence, but the man had left and police apparently waited for the man to come home.
The principal at the Milwaukee Parkside School was contacted via e-mail for comment, including police, but no response was returned by either one.
Update: Milwaukee Alderman T. Anthony Zielinski who represents the Bay View area in the 14th Alermanic District posted on his Facebook (FB) information about the naked man incident, which police from the 6th Police District Station investigated and officially filed it as “Baseless Disposition.” The unidentified property owner sent an e-mail to Ald. Zielinski and wrote, “The officers were in contact with the tenant immediately. After speaking with the tenant and gathering the facts they left and filed the official report as a “Baseless Disposition.” I am merely stating the facts of the police report so please understand that I am by NO means defending the actions of the tenant or anything the tenant may or may not have done as there are several different stories around this unfortunate event.”
Apparently police never contacted Bobby Palacios, the eye witness who first posted the incident on his FB account to alert neighborhood residents on Tuesday. In this case, police failed to contact Palacios. When contacted by Hispanic News Network U.S.A. (HNNUSA), Police Captain Alfonso Morales from the 2nd Police District Station indicated that the address in question concerning the incident was in the 6th Police District Station and he forwarded an e-mail to the Captain Diana Rowe at Police District 6 concerning HNNUSA’s interest in the matter, but Captain Rowe never responded about the “Baseless Disposition” incident of an alleged naked man standing behind a glass door incident on Tuesday around 7:30 a.m.
HNNUSA has attached Alderman Zielinski’s FB posting to update article. According to Zielinski, the alleged lower tenant was told to move out this Friday and will no longer live there.
Negligence by police in the 6th Police District Station to investigate and contact an eyewitness about the incident? It seems that way, now police are going after the vigilantes who broke the windows and will be checking FB postings about cyber treats to the lower tenant in question, according to the property owner. Hopefully, police can also come across Palacios’ FB posting about him witnessing the naked man standing behind a glass door at the 2900 block of S. Howell Ave.
