Woman, 5 Children Found Walking Nude (August 31, 2005)
ST. PETERSBURG – A naked woman and her five children – all naked and carrying Bibles – were stopped by police about 7 p.m. Tuesday.
The group was stopped near the intersection of 29th Avenue North and 15th Street North. Several people called police to report the group.
The woman was arrested and charged with child abuse and exposure of sexual organs.
Her name was not released Tuesday because officers were investigating the case, a St. Petersburg Police Department news release stated.
The children, who range in age from 5 to 15 years old, will likely be turned over to relatives, police said in a news release.
Police said the woman told them that God told her this morning that she and her children should walk down the street naked.
