IOWA CITY — An Iowa City man is accused of stripping off most of his clothing and attempting to break into a business — events he says he does not recall, according to police.
Andy Tran, 23, made his way to White Dog Auto, 424 Highland Ct. about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, according to Iowa City police criminal complaints.
Police said Tran took off his belt, watch, pants, socks and shoes. He then used a rock and a tote to break two glass doors at the business.
Tran stuck his arm through a broken door in an unsuccessful attempt to open it, police said. He then proceeded to damage two cars parked at the business. He also rummaged through a vehicle, police said.
When Tran left the business, he left behind his clothing, which contained his wallet and identification card, police said. His actions were caught on video, police said.
When police spoke with Tran about his actions, he said he did not remember them taking place.
Tran was arrested Sunday. He faces charges of third-degree burglary, a Class D felony; and third-degree burglary of an unoccupied motor vehicle, an aggravated misdemeanor.
He was released Sunday afternoon, according to jail records.
