A disgruntled neighbour has called on the family of Perth Stadium streaker Ben Jenkins to leave town to allow the community to "overcome the emotional damage" caused by his nude run.  

Mr Jenkins is facing a $5,000 fine and a three-year ban from all Cricket Australia matches after streaking across Perth Stadium during the one day international against Australia and England on January 28 in front of 54,000 people. 

The 23-year-old plumber and amateur football player later told Nine News Perth he hatched the plan to be the first streaker at the new venue during Australia Day long weekend celebrations.  

In a letter dropped into the letterbox of Mr Jenkins' father on Sunday, an anonymous person described the streaking incident as "thoughtless, childish and disgusting".

"Many men, women and children have been affected by this and it may take generations for these individuals and the community to overcome the emotional and financial damage this despicable display has created," it read.

The letter went on the say the "good and decent citizens of Toodyay" would like the Jenkins family to leave town "as soon as possible".

"If you approach any of our real estate agents, they have all said they will try and sell your property but they don't think you will get much for it because it now has a reputation". 

Laura Jenkins posted the letter on Facebook.

 A caller to Radio 6PR on Monday morning said the family was aware of the man who posted the letter. 

Mr Jenkins' sister, Laura Jenkins, posted the letter to her Facebook on Sunday, asking what the "good and decent" people of Toodyay truly thought. 

Some joked Mr Jenkins should receive "Aussie of the Year" for his stunt, while others called the contents of the note an "insane letter".

In an interview with Nine News Perth shortly after his nude run across Perth Stadium's field, Mr Jenkins said he was peer pressured into carrying out the streak after coming up with the plan with friends days earlier over drinks. 

"I sat there for a long time, I was looking at every security guard and the path I was going to take and I was just thinking, 'I really don't want to do this anymore'," he said.

"Peer pressure won. When the time was ripe and the clothes came off, there was no turning back."

Mr Jenkins evaded security for about half a minute in the 17th over with Australia 2/92 chasing England's 260 in the first international match at the new multimillion-dollar stadium, just as Australian captain Steve Smith hit Adil Rashid out to mid wicket for three runs.​

He set up a Go Fund Me page and has raised more than $5,400 to pay his impending fine.
