A man was caught with his pants down after he ran naked into a nearby South Florida house following an attempted robbery, officials said.

Deputies were called to the 1100 block of Hamptons Boulevard in North Lauderdale after a witness saw two men walk out of a home with a 50-inch television, according to a Broward County arrest report.

Authorities were able to catch up with one of the men, 21-year-old Zane Thompson-Henry, but the other man, 21-year-old Patrick James, ran away, the report said.

As James fled, an officer grabbed onto his clothing to try and stop him, causing James' pants to fall down, officials said. In order to get away, James took off his shirt and pants, and he fled the area with no clothes on, the report said.

He then ran into a nearby house where the door happened to be open, officials said. He made a hand gesture to be quiet to the two women who were talking inside and ducked behind the kitchen cabinets, according to the arrest report.

Deputies arrested him at the woman's house. He was charged with grand theft, burglary of an occupied residence, resisting an officer without violence and violation of his community control. He was being held without bond in the Broward County Main Jail as of Friday.
