SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 28 (UPI) -- A Santa Ana, Calif., family was evacuated from their home after a naked man with a tattoo on his face was spotted on their roof, police said.

Cprl. Anthony Bertagna of the Santa Ana Police Department told the Orange County (Calif.) Register a man, his wife and a child were evacuated from their home Wednesday afternoon after freeway drivers contacted authorities regarding a naked man allegedly performing a sex act on a rooftop.

Police say they found Charles Edward Meaux Jr., hiding in a closet inside the home. Officers say they used a stun gun in their effort to restrain the suspect, the report said.

Bertanga said Meaux, 36, was arrested last week in a similar incident. The tattoo on his face references the white supremacists group, Fight For Freedom, Bertanga said.

The Register said Meaux previously served prison and jail sentences on burglary and theft charges, as well as possession of a deadly weapon and driving under the influence.
