Police arrest naked man carrying gun
•DULUTH - A 35-year-old Duluth man was found naked Wednesday walking through an apartment complex and carrying a gun, according to a police report.
Responding to complaints of a suspicious person at Alara Pleasant Hill apartments in Duluth, officers found Ronald Kimberly Anthony nude and kneeling on the ground in the parking lot. Anthony was pointing a semi-automatic pistol to his head, the police report said.
Anthony did not comply with orders to drop the gun. Instead he stood up and began walking toward the open entrance gate. He had "a brief moment of clarity" in which he threw down the gun, the police report stated. However, when officers began to approach Anthony, he turned again and walked back toward the gun.
An officer stunned Anthony twice with a Taser while attempting to gain control of him. Anthony was then transported to Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital for involuntary committal.
Man tries to rob woman on trail

The woman told police she was on the trail behind the basketball courts when she heard someone run up behind her. A man grabbed her by the neck and demanded money. She told the man she had no money, but he released her neck, grabbed her right arm and again demanded money.
When the woman threatened to call police, the would-be robber said "call the police, I'll be here," according to a police report. He then ran away toward the park entrance.
The suspect is described as a thin Hispanic man, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with short hair. He was wearing blue jeans with a white shirt wrapped around his waist, the report said.
