A naked man who assaulted an Indianapolis Metro Police officer and energy industry worker during a bizarre series of events Wednesday had a "crazed look in his eyes," reports the Indianapolis Star.

Gilbert Sweazey, 36, streaked through downtown and attempted to carjack a truck when the driver refused to give up his vehicle and fought with Sweazey until officers arrived to help. Sweazey punched one of the officers in the face. The officer pepper sprayed Sweazey.

With officers in pursuit, Sweazey climbed a fence and entered the Citizens Energy Group plant. When officers entered the building, they found Sweazey using a metal pipe to choke an employee. During the episode, Sweazey showed "extra human strength."
