ALBION, Ill. (Associated Press) -

A southern Illinois man awakened to find a spider in his bed, and it's through a glass door naked he fled.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports that Albion police say the 20-year-old man was sleeping in the buff when he spotted the arachnid Tuesday morning and bolted from his home in the 2,000-resident town in Edwards County.

Sheriff Darby Boewe says the disoriented man apparently ran through a glass storm door during his escape, cutting his arms, legs and a finger. He was treated at a hospital.

Authorities fielded numerous reports of a bloody streaker and later found the man back at his home, where he'd donned some shorts.

It isn't clear what kind of spider he encountered.

The sheriff doesn't suspect drugs or alcohol were involved.
