A naked man was arrested in Orlando late Tuesday after he allegedly robbed a store at gunpoint but was dragged back inside by the clerk, who called police, officials said.

The robbery happened around 11:30 p.m. at The Grocery Box on Texas Avenue and Americana Boulevard.

According to Orange County sheriff's deputies, a gunman entered the store, stole lottery tickets and cash before fleeing on a bike.

The clerk fought back, however, chasing the gunman out of the store, according to deputies, who added that the gunman's clothes somehow came off during the incident.

The clerk held the man until deputies arrived and made an arrest.

Deputies are reviewing surveillance video of the robbery and said the gunman could face several charges, including armed robbery and indecent exposure.

Video from Local 6 showed socks and what appeared to be other clothing and lottery tickets on the ground outside the store.

No other details have been released.
