Park City police blotter: Man wearing only underwear seen

A man wearing only underwear was reportedly seen in the Main Street core on Sunday, Nov. 17, prompting an unsuccessful search for the person by the Park City Police Department.

The police received the report at 1:04 a.m. at or close to the intersection of Park Avenue and 9th Street. The person was attempting to catch a cab, the police were told. The person was also seen in the vicinity of the Town Lift and a nearby residential development, according to the police. Police officers were unable to find the person.

The initial report to the police indicated the man was naked, but the Police Department said he was in underwear.

Other incidents reported to the Police Department last week included:
