Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) officers looking for fishing violators found more than they bargained for as they boated past the riverbank of Wayside Park.
The officers spotted a man was sitting in a sling with his wrists and ankles tied to a tree in the Ramsey park 10 May shortly after 5.00pm.
The man was blindfolded, wearing jean shorts, a black do rag and had his genitals exposed.
Ramsey police officers were called in to search for the man, but he appeared to have left the area where they found the sling, which was in a
no trespassing area of the park.
They later found the man, identified as Alan David Petrusson, Pillager, walking along the riverbank.
Although Petrusson claimed to have been just resting in the sling and that he did not realise he was exposed, police think he may have been there for anonymous sex, according to Ramsey Police Chief Jim Way — via redwolf.newsvine.com
