Officer Gavin Hearst and Rommel Benjamin received a call about a man asking people for money by the D.S.C on Sep. 24 at 9:20 a.m. Benjamin observed the subject talking to different people walking by on the north side of Student Union B. He claimed he wasn’t begging for money, but waiting for his sister to get out of the science building. The subject revealed he wasn’t a student at UA Little Rock. In the report, a student stated the subject had asked him for money. Benjamin asked to gather further information about the man.
