A naked man was arrested on a charge of trespassing after allegedly climbing into a chimney while playing hide and seek with his cousin, according to police in Iowa.
Carroll police said that they have arrested 29-year-old Jordan Kajewski, after firefighters pulled him out naked from the chimney at the Carroll Redemption Center recycling plant.
Kajewski was charged with one count of trespassing.
Carrie Sapp, the owner of the Carroll Redemption Center recycling plant, said that she heard noise from the chimney on Wednesday morning.
The man shouted for help and explained that he was playing hide and seek with his cousin before getting stuck. He pleaded for her not to call the police.
Sapp called for help, and firefighters initially tried to use a rope to pull Kajewski out of the chimney. When that didn’t work, firefighters punched hole in the chimney and pulled the man out.
Kajewski was naked, but he had all his clothes with him. Brad Sapp said that he knew Kajewski because he had asked him three times in recent weeks for a job at his recycling plant.
Kajewski spent around 12 hours in the chimney.
