Police arrested a man accused of “humping trees” in a stranger’s backyard.

On Nov. 12 at around 3 p.m., Naugatuck Police responded to a report of an “unknown male in a backyard, half-dressed, humping trees, screaming, and eating branches,” police said.

When police arrived on the scene, High Street, the suspect allegedly ran into a nearby home causing the residents to flee, police said. The suspect came out of the home and was arrested, police said.

During the incident the suspect also allegedly spat at and assaulted police officers, police said.
