Ann Arbor Police Lt. Angella Abrams said she had no knowledge of the reports as of Thursday afternoon, but confirmed police were aware of them.
Williams asked the school’s parents to discuss the information with their students and told them to be alert and report any suspicious behavior to school administrators.
Police released a crime alert to crime watch block captains earlier on Thursday, which was obtained by AnnArbor.com.
On Aug. 6, a 32-year-old woman was walking on the north side of Fuller Road by Huron, when she observed a vehicle parked the wrong way in the high school’s drive way. The woman approached the vehicle and a man opened his door and stood up, revealing that he was completely naked.
She described the man was a white man in his 60s, about 5-foot-10 inches tall, weighing approximately 230 pounds. He had a “bulbous nose” and was wearing round wire framed glasses, with drak brown hair parted in the middle. He was driving a navy blue vehicle.
On Aug. 21, a University of Michigan student was driving westbound when she saw a nude white man standing on the south sidewalk near 800 Fuller St. He then began walking westbound on the same sidwalk.
The suspect was an overweight white male in his 50s, about 5-foot-9 inches tall with brown shoulder-length, curly hair with no glasses.
The second incident on Aug. 21 involved a 31-year-old woman walking on the north side of the 2700 block of Fuller Road near Huron. The woman saw the suspect’s vehicle backing up in Huron parking lot , near the west-most entrance off Fuller. She continued to walk on the sidewalk when a man exited the driver’s side of the vehicle.
This man was also completely nude. The woman said the male suspect was smiling at her, before she ran away closer to the roadside.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 50s, between 5-foot-8 inches and 5-foot-9 inches tall, with “scraggly” blond-brown, wavy hair wearing yellow-brown tinted sunglasses. He was driving a dark blue 4-door vehicle.
There was one other incident in September 2010 when cross-country runners from Huron observed a naked man who was close to the descriptions given in the latest incidents.
Ann Arbor schools spokesperson Liz Margolis said the police are on top of the situation and asked the district to send out the alert. There have been no threats toward any of the people who have observed the man nude, she said.
“The man has never been threatening but has just appeared as people have approached him while he was sitting in a parked car,” she said in a statement. “He appears naked and at one time told the runner that he wasn’t going to do anything and just stood there.”
