SAINT-JEROME, Que. — Quebec provincial police say they arrested a naked, handcuffed fugitive north of Montreal on Friday.

Anthony Cliche escaped police custody early Thursday morning and ran away while wearing a pair of pants and handcuffs.

Police say they don't know why he was no longer wearing clothes when he was recaptured in Sainte-Sophie, 60 kilometres northwest of Montreal.

The 25-year-old was treated for hypothermia.
