Nude man walks into Tempe home, homeowner holds man at gunpoint

Authorities are continuing to search for a man who walked into a Tempe home without any clothes on.

On Wednesday, Tempe police were called to the area of Scottsdale Road and McKellips Street after a homeowner said a nude man walked into his home uninvited.

Tempe police said the naked man was able to crawl over a fence in an alley to gain access to the home. The suspect entered the house though an unlocked door. Two adults and two children under the age of four were all in the home at the time. 

The suspect told the family he was "invited" to this particular home and would pay the homeowner in diamonds. 

After the homeowner, Tyler Piltz, held the suspect at gunpoint and chased him out, the unknown man allegedly found clothes in an alley and put them on before fleeing the area, officials said. 

Piltz says he's still shaken up by the bizarre incident.

"My wife said, 'Ty, there's a man in the house,'" Piltz said. "I chased him out here with the gun and actually held it on him..."

His 4-year-old daughter wondered what was going on too. 

"She said 'Daddy, is the monster gone? Did you take care of the monster?'" Piltz explained. "And I said, 'Yeah, daddy got rid of the bad man.'"

Piltz says he's relieved he didn't shoot the man but said he would have done what he needed to keep the family safe. 

"You know, if he wouldn't have left, I know that I wouldn't have hesitated to shoot him," he said.

The suspect is described as being Hispanic, in his late 30s, medium build with dark, short hair and dark complexion. He’s believed to be wearing dirty torn jeans.

No injuries were reported during the incident.
