KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Thursday morning began uncomfortably for residents at 60th & Kenwood when a naked man, who officers believe was high on drugs, attempted to break into their home at about 4:30 a.m.

When officers arrived they found the man, Phillip Alongi, running around in the street without any clothes on. The residents had called police after, they say, he tried to break in through their front door. Officers ordered him to stop running around in the street but instead of obeying they say he ran to the backyard of another residence where he rammed his head into a glass door. At that point, officers say they were able to get him into a prone position, but he fought them off and they used a taser gun on him, although it had no effect.

Officers called for assistance and upon their arrival, the police were able to get him under control.

Police are asking prosecutors to file charges against Alongi for destruction of property and assault on officers.
