On Sunday, January 17th at approxtimately 8:45am, residents in Walnut Creek, California reported allegedly seeing a nude man running naer the intersection of Treat Blvd and North Main Street.

According to Amy B, who reported the sighting on Nextdoor, the man was seen near the Sprouts market "completely naked, no shoes or anything" and appeared to be "pretty fit." Other residents reported seeing the man as well, and one poster indicated that the man may have been her son, who "lost a fantasty football bet."

Most residents responding to the sighting say it as a harmless instance of the "streaking" fad, whereas others expressed concern and urged calls to the police. No residents stated that they had reported the incident, and most took the opportunity to poke fun at the sighting, with questions such as "Was he at least wearing a mask?", a reference to the ongoing Covid-19 public health orders.
