Students reported seeing a man streaking naked across campus during lunch between 12:20 and 12:30 p.m. Friday, May 22. The incident occurred at the same time as the final rounds of the school’s dodgeball tournament in the gym.
Waving a Russian flag and sporting a “Scream” mask, the white male displayed “’09”on his buttocks in green ink, say many students. According to junior Maxine Sferra, the man graduated high school last year but was never a student at the school. The streaker’s identity has not been confirmed, but he is believed to be the same man who streaked across campus in 2007.
According to Principal Wynne Satterwhite, the administration notified the Los Altos Police Department immediately after his appearance.
“We’re in the process of investigating right now,” Satterwhite said. “Indecent exposure is against the law, and that was pretty indecent.”
According to freshman Danny Duperrault, the streaker entered the school from between the administrative buildings and the library.
“Me and my friends were sitting on the grass,” Danny said. “None of us really said anything until he was past our site … my friends were like ‘Oh, dude. There’s a streaker!’”
The streaker then cut across the quad towards the gym, according to senior Rufus Gorkhali, who had been sitting on the steps of the math building at the time.
“At first I heard some commotion so I looked toward the quad,” Rufus said. “I saw this person from the distance running, but I couldn’t tell he was naked. And when he was facing directly at me and running towards me, I was completely shocked and traumatized and I was about to throw up.”
The streaker’s run ended when he exited the school through the tennis courts, and according to Danny, entered a car which was waiting for him. Students had varied responses to the streaker.
“I missed it last year, so I’m really glad I saw it this year,” Sarah said.
Rufus reacted differently.
“I think it’s really stupid” Rufus said. “People shouldn’t do this because it ruins the decency of the school.”
