Stock Island – A naked woman crawling on Maloney Avenue without regard to traffic was taken to Lower Keys Hospital Monday afternoon after a struggle with deputies.
When Deputies Geni Hernandez and Jaime Miranda arrived at 2:15 p.m., they found a crowd of people in the area of El Mocho Restaurant on Maloney Avenue. They also found 32 year old Alena Larrazabal, naked, in the middle of the street. As they approached her, Larrazabal was crawling on her hands and knees as vehicles swerved to avoid hitting her. At one point, she rolled onto her back and spread her legs; she then continued crawling around.
The deputies attempted to take her into custody, but she began to fight with them. Paramedics arrived on the scene and, together with the deputies they were able to restrain her on a stretcher. She was transported to the hospital for evaluation.
Later, after she became more coherent, Larrazabal told Deputy Hernandez she had been on a cocaine binge.
Charges may be pending against her.
