Omaha police: Naked man attacked 2 officers

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Omaha authorities say a man found naked on a street has been accused of attacking two officers.

The Omaha Police Department says 20-year-old Travis Kitkowski was arrested shortly after midnight Sunday. Officers had been responding to a radio call about a naked man chasing someone.

Officers spotted a naked Kitkowski and tried to engage him in conversation, but he did not respond. He is accused of then suddenly attacking officers. One officer suffered a concussion and another officer sustained a hand injury after Kitkowski allegedly bit him.

Numerous officers were needed to restrain Kitkowski. He and the injured officers were taken to a local hospital.

Police say Kitkowski will be charged once he is released from the hospital.
