Police have identified a man who was found naked and bleeding behind a Morlan Park Road home. The 59-year-old man was arrested Feb. 1 after the homeowners believed someone was trying to break into the house.
A family member who made contact with the Salisbury Police through the school system was able to confirm his identity.
