Police located McCarthy shortly after they received a report from a resident on Brushy Hill Road of a naked man on their back deck, police said.

He was charged with disorderly conduct, strangulation/suffocate, and assault of an elderly victim.

McCarthy was held overnight on a $10,000 bond and appeared in court on Tuesday.
