BALDWIN - Police have released the identity of the man who ran naked on Nassau County streets and then died after being handcuffed by police.

Police say Christian Collado, of Baldwin, was spotted running in traffic on Merrick Road in Baldwin yesterday morning.

The 31-year-old pounded on the door of a commuter bus and tried to get in. Officers say upon arrival, they put Collado in handcuffs to prevent him from injuring himself or others.

Collado suffered what cops are calling an "unknown medical emergency."

Collado was rushed to the hospital but doctors were unable to save him.
