Looking for warm clothes, a naked intruder tried to rob a bridal store near Würzburg early Wednesday morning. Finding nothing that fit, he fled but was arrested by police not long thereafter.

The 35-year-old man threw a flower pot at the glass door of the bridal shop in the Bavarian town of Wildflecken, police reported Wednesday.

The burglar rummaged through the racks, apparently finding nothing suitable. He fled the scene but had been cut by glass shards when he broke the glass doors.

Police were able to track him down by following the trail of blood he left. The police could not explain why the man was unclothed.
