Police arrest suspected prowling panhandler

SOUTH EUCLID, OH (WOIO) - Notre Dame College Police in South Euclid have picked up a panhandler they've been warning students about. No charges have been filed but they are expected soon.

Police say one incident happened on March 26.  At around 7:30 a.m. that day, the man approached a student in the Main Administration parking lot and asked for a ride to a nearby CVS Pharmacy. The student gave the man a ride and then he asked to borrow $200 for medicine for his daughter.

The student then took the man to an ATM, took money out and gave it to him before dropping him off at the Indians Hills Community Center.

The panhandler got the student's number, because he said he wanted to give the money back.

The man did call the student, and instead of giving back the money, he asked for more.

The student then contacted his parents who called police.

Police say a similar incident with this subject may have happened on one other occasion at the college.
