MARGATE, Fla. – A naked homeless man was arrested last week after he was found in a storage room in the back of a Margate day care, police said.

Scott Hansen, 56, was arrested Thursday outside Children's World of Margate.

According to a Margate police report, Hansen was found in the storage room with the door open, facing an area where children routinely play.

When Officer Armando Hernandez asked Hansen what he was doing there, Hansen said that is where he lives, the report said.

Hansen faces a charge of indecent exposure.

"The children didn't even know that the incident happened," Children's World of Margate owner and director Tara Herman told Local10.com.

Herman said the safety of the children is her first priority. She said the storage room to the complex where the day care is located has since been locked.
