it's a crime many can unfortunately relate to, someone breaks into your car and takes your stuff. But one alleged Miami-Dade robber decided to pull his heist off in his birthday suit.

When Miami police responded to a robbery in progress call Wednesday they received a nude awakening.

Cops arrived at NE 3rd Avenue and 82nd Street and found a man holding a naked man on the ground, who was accused of breaking into a car and stealing the radio.

According to authorities, the robbery suspect, 17-year-old Kendrick Davis, was clothed at first, but decided to pull his streak routine to escape.

It didn't work.

The owner of the car, who was getting ready to go to work, and a witness chased Davis down the street and a fight broke out, an arrest report stated.

As the fight progressed, Davis began stripping his clothes off.

That didn't stop the victim from tackling the suspect and pinning him to the ground until cops arrived.

Davis, now nude, was anything but bashful and yelled profanities at the officer and the guy who violently helped undressed him.

Police say Davis had several open arrest warrants, as well as another car radio and GPS in his possession, which are believed to be stolen.

The teen was charged with grand theft and burglary.
