I'm not familiar with his name, it could be Tim for all I know, but a few months ago a really aggressive beggar was hanging around the North Side branch of the Library, where he tried to hit me up for cash, and was much more aggressive than other beggars. Then he wouldn't let my girl friend out of her car one day when she came home from work, and followed her to the front door. I told him to leave and shut the door in his face, then he came back a few days latter, and she was at work; I told him not to come around again. I haven't seen him since.
I saw him for a while "living" or at least hanging out a lot around the 70 McMillen building, the same building that Charlie W. Myers, was arrested in.
We live in a building just a few doors down, and just in the past month, since mid December, McMillen has been made impassible by Swat twice. Once when our neighbor wigged out and threatened to kill himself, and the second when Myers was arrested. The building we live in is decent, though we have some noisy undergrads above us, most of the residence are grad students/med students/law students, and a few working singles and couples. However we are flanked on both sides by crazies. The building next door is like a 24/7 Jerry Springer show.
Just last week, when going to work in the morning we were greeted by a rifle carrying cop telling us to go back inside, they were checking in on one of the neighbors. We moved to Columbus about a year and a half ago, we chose the area because it boarders the SN, VV and Campus. We love the area, but the crime and the crazies are getting more violent. Last year the worse thing that went down were a few car thefts from the parking lot (mostly for parts), this year has been much more disquieting. We are planning on staying, moving to the north side of the VV area soon, we are hoping the area quickly improves.
