CHARLOTTE (AP) — Police say traffic came to a stop on a busy Charlotte street over the weekend when two naked women and two naked children walked down the road.

A child neglect complaint was filed with the Department of Social Services on Saturday against the mother of the children, the Charlotte Observer reported.


Police say a woman in her 20s was walking with her mother in her 40s and a toddler and newborn baby down Providence Road, prompting traffic delays.

“Like freshly-born baby naked,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg police Capt. Rod Farley said. “This was Adam and Eve stuff, not even a loincloth.”

When police stopped the women, they said “the Lord told them to get naked and walk down the street,” Farley said.

The women and children were taken to a local hospital for an examination. Their names were not released.

The sight “blew my mind,” said Jill Mead, who was driving on the road at the time.
