PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -- A Phoenix man is facing a slew of felony charges after he was arrested outside an apartment – not his – while wearing only socks and tennis shoes.


Edward Scott

According to police, Edward Scott, 41, lives at the complex where he was arrested and was naked when “unlawfully entered” the victims’ apartment the afternoon of Tuesday, Dec. 18.

There were three people home at the time, including a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old. It’s not clear if Scott knows them.

After pushing one of the victims aside as he went into the unit, police said Scott went into the kitchen “where he began throwing items around and breaking a glass vase on the floor ….”

Police said he pushed the 16-year-old when she tried to stop him and then punched her in the arm.

According to court documents, the 17-year-old called the police.

“Edward started chasing all three victims around the apartment prior to leaving through the front door and getting locked out,” according to the probable cause for arrest statement.

Officers said Scott was banging on the door and yelling when they arrived on the scene. The arresting officer wrote in that probable cause statement that Scott was “acting extremely erratic” and “was very agitated.”

Scott’s public court documents indicate investigators’ belief that he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol when all of this happened.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office filed a direct complaint in court the Friday afternoon before Christmas. Scott is facing eight felony charges including multiple counts each of aggravated assault and indecent exposure, as well as criminal damage, burglary, and criminal trespassing.
