Police have charged an Islip Terrace man accused of stripping naked and chasing a 17-year-oldgirl on a path in Southards Pond Park with stalking.

It's disgusting, says Babylon resident Brian Flynn. I couldn't even know what to say moreabout that, except that it would taint a little girl's mind forever.

Police say the teen girl was jogging on the path on Monday when Juan Fuentes, 27, ran past herfrom the opposite direction. They say he turned around and continued to jog behind her.

Police say that the girl looked back and saw Fuentes running naked after her. She sprinted awayand called authorities.

Police arrested Fuentes at his workplace -- Belmont Twins Deli in West Babylon.

A friend of Fuentes says he is married and has two girls, ages 3 and 5.

He doesn't have any mental issues with running around the public nude, says Cesar DeLeon, thefriend. I was shocked yesterday.
