Naked man wearing only a pair of socks gets bashed after charging group on packed street

A NAKED man was bashed after charging at a group on a crowded NYC street – wearing only a pair of white socks.

Shocking footage shows the streaker attacking people in the Bronx before he's thrown to the ground on Monday.

The 28-year-old naked man was filmed running through the Fordham Heights neighborhood at around 3.30 pm and setting upon a man wearing a coronavirus face mask.

The two exchange punches across East Fordham Road near Morris Avenue before other witnesses got involved.

One person can be heard shrieking “No!' multiple times during the Bronx brawl.

The bare knuckle fighter can be seen thrown to the sidewalk and pummeled by three men as one of them attempted to restrain him.

But he simply picks himself up off the ground and goes after the group once more – even when one man slams him into a car on East Fordham Road.

As the bizarre clip comes to an end, the sock-loving streaker can be seen still lurking around.

An NYPD spokeswoman initially told The New York Post that the viral Twitter video was old before confirming it took place on Monday.

Cops got a call about an emotionally disturbed man and they took him to St Barnabas Hospital.

The Sun has contacted DCPI for comment on Thursday evening.
