Police say a naked man on drugs chased a woman who was struck by a car in West Haven.

In a press release, officers say Lawrence Jones attacked the woman outside his residence at 78 Homeside Avenue.

As she was trying to get away, police say the woman was struck by an unkown vehicle.

Officers found her lying in the roadway.  Police also found the woman’s 9-year-old daughter.

People in the area said Jones hit the girl in the face, when the child tried to help her mother.

Officers also encountered Jones himself.  They say he was combative.

Police used a stun gun to zap the short, naked man, who was missing some of his teeth according to arrest documents.

The woman, her daughter, and Jones were all taken to the hospital for treatment.

Jones is charged with two counts of third degree assault, risk of injury to a child, and disorderly conduct.  He was due in court today.

Officers did NOT identify the child or the woman.
