The Toronto Police Service is on the hunt for a man who stripped off naked to swim with sharks at the aquarium after he had earlier assaulted a gentleman who ended up in hospital.

According to law enforcement the male approached the open shark tank and removed all of his clothing on Friday night around 10.30pm.

He then proceeded to jump into the water and spent several minutes swimming and diving and families watched on at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada.

Video footage captured by an onlooker on their mobile phone shows the nude male paddling around where the docile tiger sand sharks live.

Audio reveals he was met with cheers (and some squealing from uncomfortable youngsters) as he moved around without clothing and at one point dived in backwards when he was met by security.

When the tattooed man finally did leave the tank, he seemed calm as he spoke to staff guarding the area and they too seemed unruffled but it counted against them.

Thought to be 5’10’ and 220 lbs, he was wearing a dark hoodie, dark jeans, a green T-shirt, and gray-and-white shoes

The goatee-bearded fellow managed to escape law enforcement as he waited to be questioned.

According to The Star, he walked right out of the venue with his girlfriend but thankfully he was wearing a dark hoodie, dark jeans, a green T-shirt, and gray-and-white shoes according to cops. 

Believed to be 35-40 years old, 5’10’ and 220 lbs, the man who sported low shaved hair on his head has caused trouble earlier in the evening.

While no sharks or humans were harmed on this occasion, the suspect had seriously hurt a male at Medieval Times at around 8.30pm before fleeing.

The 34-year-old victim ended up being hospitalized and now the troublemaker is wanted in a Mischief Interfere with Property investigation.

‘Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada is cooperating with authorities and is willing to press all appropriate charges once the individual has been apprehended,’ an aquarium spokesperson wrote in a statement.

‘We believe the same person is responsible for both incidents,’ Toronto police Constable Allyson Douglas-Cook said. ‘We are investigating it as such.’
