Kayla Reierson was in the basement of her parents' house this morning packing for a hunting trip, when she heard a commotion on the first floor.

The 22-year-old, who thought she was home alone, came up the stairs and saw the blinds in front of a sliding glass door swaying back and forth.

"Then I looked in the backyard, and it was this naked man running in the backyard," she said. "He didn't even have shoes on."

That was shortly after 9:30 a.m. when the temperature was about 32 degrees, and there was still frost on the grass in the shade.

"I still can't believe this happened," Reierson said as she sat at her kitchen table not too long after the incident.

Reierson, a senior at UND, said she never saw the guy inside but figures he came and left out the door that connects the garage to the house, which is on the 500 block of North 51st Street in Grand Forks.

She said the naked man appeared to be college-age and was tan. "He looked ripped," she added.

About two weeks ago, Reierson's garage was broken into and so was a car she was renting. Those break-ins, she said, heightened her unease about seeing a naked man in her yard.

"That's why I was just freaking out," she said.

Reierson reported the apparent break-in which prompted several officers to search the area on foot and in vehicles.

Other sightings of the man led officers to focus their hunt on a residential area bound by North 55th Street, 8th Avenue North, North 53rd Street and Sixth Avenue North.

But ultimately, the man was not apprehended, said Lt. Grant Schiller of the Grand Forks Police Department.
