Naked woman draws attention at Farmington bank

A naked woman who wandered into a downtown Farmington bank caught the attention of bank employees, customers and Farmington police late Tuesday afternoon.

The 28-year-old woman walked into the lobby of Anchor Bank shortly after 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. Police showed up about five minutes later after receiving multiple calls and an ambulance a short time after that.

The woman, who was not identified, was taken away in the ambulance for further evaluation.

Farmington police chief Brian Lindquist said police believe the woman was suffering from a psychological condition.

Lindquist said the woman drove herself to the bank and parked around the corner before wandering in. Bank employees and customers came to her aid quickly.

It does not appear anyone else was with the woman.

"I can't imagine someone else would have allowed her to do that," Lindquist said.

Lindquist said most calls police get about an unclothed individual are the result of either excited delirium or a drug that causes people to feel like their body is on fire. Both of those conditions cause the individual to behave in a volatile manner, but Lindquist said the woman who walked into the bank was compliant when people came to her assistance.

Police do not plan to pursue criminal charges against the woman.
