A naked man crashed through the ceiling of a US airport and attacked an elderly man before he was stopped and arrested by police.

Cameron Shenk, 26, is understood to have walked into the women’s bathroom of Boston Logan Airport and stripped naked inside a cubicle, before climbing into a dropped ceiling.

He then crashed through the ceiling onto the bathroom floor and startled a woman in the room, before attacking an 84-year-old man by biting his ear and attempting to strangle the man with his own cane.

One Massachusetts State trooper was injured as authorities tackled the naked man

Shenk struggled with troopers who arrested him on Saturday at the scene, and left one officer injured. He was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital for treatment. The elderly man was reportedly hospitalised with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Massachusetts State Police said the reason for the attack is unknown.

Shenk is has been charged with attempted murder, assault and battery on a person over 60 and committing a lewd and lascivious act. He is due to appear in court for his arraignment on Monday.
