A Joliet man went for a naked walk with his young nieces and nephews Thursday afternoon, police said.

Angel Cadena-Ortiz, 20, of 216 Ohio St. was charged with endangering the life or health of children. He was also jailed on a pair of Will County warrants charging him with failing to appear in court for obstructing justice and driving with a revoked license cases.

The law received several calls about a "naked individual running with children" near the corner of Fourth and Winston avenues shortly before 12:30 p.m., police said.

When officers arrived, they reportedly spotted a naked Cadena-Ortiz with two boys and two girls between the ages of 3 and 14.

The children told the officers Cadena-Ortiz, who is their uncle, was "acting weird," police said.

They reportedly informed the cops that Cadena-Ortiz told them they were "going to a friend's house to use the bathroom," police said, and then led them on a walk.

Along the way, he reportedly told the children to get undressed and threw their coats in a garbage can. As he walked on, Cadena-Ortiz disrobed and tossed his own clothes in a different garbage can, police said.

Staff at the Will County jail were advised of Cadena-Ortiz's alleged bizarre behavior and he was to be subjected to an evaluation, police said.

Thanks E. And no Steve I have been on here for sometime. But it seems for the most part this has been a place for bashing and making fun of things instead of holding intelligent conversation. So I had choose not to participate with people that is as yourself. Always trying to put someone down or making jokes at someone else's expensive.

So what was your post about me meant to be? A backward insult... So what if I was I can't stand for people to make uneducated comments or try to be mean and laugh at another person. Is there something wrong with that Steve? Do you find it hard to believe people can be caring and don't feel the need to want to laugh or make fun of someone? I guess be a liberal is a bad thing then. If so call me what you want
