Police were called to local restaurant after several people expressed concerned over a bearded man wandering around the back of neighboring buildings.
“He was pretty creepy looking,” said one man, who was enjoying a burrito at La Bamba on Saturday night, when his wife pointed out the man, who was ‘lurking’ about and ‘acting strangely’.
Restaurant employees confronted the man, who said he was ‘looking for his flock’. Someone told the stranger he should go home, but the man gave conflicting responses, including ‘I have no home’ and ‘The world is my home’. The employees retreated to the restaurant after the man offered to share some wine with them.
“I think he was on drugs,” said employee Dan Sanchez.
Police were called, but the man had moved on before they could question him. A sketch artist was brought in and a composite drawing was made of the man.
“We’re looking for a homeless man in a hoodie,” said police spokesman Darrel Birch. “He had long, scraggly hair and a beard. While he has done nothing illegal or threatening, we recommend you call the police immediately. You never know what these types are after.”
