A 21-year-old Peralta man was transported to an Albuquerque hospital Jan. 9 after police found him nude and crouched on the roof of a shed near the Bubble Lounge.

About 5:45 p.m., Bosque Farms police arrived at the parking lot of the business and found the man "upset and irrational" as officers tried to talk him into coming down from the shed, according to a police report.

The report said the man refused to talk with officers after trying to convince him to come down from the roof because of the cold temperatures that night.

Shortly after, the man agreed to come off of the roof without further incident.

According to the report, the man's father said his son has been "irrational and delusional" since October 2012, and at some point, the University of New Mexico Hospital staff said the man could suffer from schizophrenia.

He was not charged in the incident.
