Nude jogger draws ire of Montreal neighbours

A male jogger, seen wearing only running shoes and a tuque, has been spotted several times in the past few months in Montreal's l'Île-de-la-Visitation park.

Police confirm they've opened an investigation after man spotted several times

One Montreal runner appears to be besting winter in the buff. 

The male jogger, seen wearing only running shoes and a tuque, has been spotted several times in the past few months in Montreal's l'Île-de-la-Visitation park. 

One resident, who had already filed a complaint with police after spotting the man five times, shot a video of the robe-less runner on March 9, when the temperature in Montreal was below zero. 

The runner showed up at around 4 a.m. ET, around the same time he's always been spotted. 

More than one resident has complained about the man to police, and a neighbour who contacted Radio-Canada said it appeared the concerns weren't being taken seriously.

Montreal police said an investigation has been opened, but wouldn't say how many complaints have been received.

If caught, the nude runner could face criminal charges for indecent exposure and exhibitionism.

He could also face fines under municipal bylaws.
