(ANSA) – Bari, August 22 – Police on Monday arrested a Nigerian man after he stripped himself naked aboard a coach between the Puglia city of Bari and the seaside town of Giovinazzo. Once naked, the 24-year-old made sexual advances to one of the other four passengers, albeit without approaching her. He also pushed the driver around and bit a passenger’s hand.
The driver stopped the coach and called the cops while the young man proceeded to break the bus windows with a rock he picked up from the ground.
The Nigerian has been living in Italy for the past seven years and is waiting for his residency permit, which expired in June, to be renewed.
Once arrested, he told Carabinieri police he is a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses – a Christian sect that believes Armageddon is imminent and secular society is dominated by the devil – and that he doesn’t know why he acted as he did
