A man in the southern French city of Toulouse was quite literally caught with his pants down on Wednesday when he was arrested stark naked at the city’s main station while chasing a prostitute who had apparently robbed him.

Passengers at Toulouse-Matabiau, the city's main station, were treated to a bizarre spectacle at around 6am on Wednesday morning when a 36-year-old man was seen running through the building unclothed.

At first railway police suspected a crime of a sexual nature when they saw the unclad man jump on a woman running along the station, before the man explained that he had in fact been robbed.

“The woman who you are letting go is a prostitute who took my bag, my papers!” the man told police, according to local paper Charente Libre.

The man explained that he had come from a nearby hotel where a prostitute had made off with his bag, which contained his ID papers and more €500.

The 33-year-old prostitute, who is from Madagascar, was found to be in possession of the stolen bag and was taken into police custody.
