A man went on an unusual pre-Christmas rampage that allegedly involved him exposing himself to children, stealing an officer’s Taser and then attempting to get into a police car.

Lunarness Mendoza, 32, was eventually caught and arrested on charges of assaulting an officer, indecent exposure and theft.

He had reportedly taken the Taser from a female police officer last Monday in Portland, United States, after she had responded to reports of him exposing himself.

Luckily the police woman was able to remove the Taser’s cartridge before the man grabbed it, which reduced its threat.

The officer then called for backup as the suspect tried to unsuccessfully get into her locked patrol car.

The officer was treated at hospital for minor injuries.

Police say several people appeared to be filming and photographing the encounter but did not stay to talk to police.
