POLICE and police community support officers were called to Disley last week after reports of a naked man running around in public.
Officers were called to Buxton Road shortly after 11am on Wednesday following reports of the man being in the road between the Rams Head and the White Lion.
On arrival officers discovered the man had a self-inflicted wound, believed to be to the genitals, and was bleeding heavily.
He was in a very agitated state and was taken to Stepping Hill Hospital in Stockport.
No other person was involved in the incident.
A police spokesperson confirmed the man had scissors with him but these were taken off him by police officers.
