North Lauderdale resident Anna Desius said Patrick James, 21, had "nothing but socks" on when he came in through her front door while she was talking with a friend Tuesday, the South Florida Sun Sentinel reported Friday.
James shushed the two women and attempted to hide in the home's kitchen, where he was arrested by a Broward Sheriff's Office deputy.
The sheriff's office report said James and Zane Thompson-Henry, 21, were being pursued by deputies after sealing a TV from a nearby home, and James lost his pants when a deputy attempted to grab him.
He shed the rest of his clothes while fleeing, the sheriff's office said.
