A few weeks ago, this woman’s three children caught the flu. Her oldest child got sick first, followed by her two other children. She took them to the doctor and then went to CVS, located right down the street from their home, to pick up her children’s prescriptions.

Rather than bring her children along, she dropped them off at the house with her husband. She thought they should lay in bed and rest, and she left to pick up the medications and Pedialyte from CVS.

Their neighborhood is safe enough that she goes walking at night without fear. The majority of their neighbors are elderly and have been living in the area for more than 10 years. Once she reached the store, she parked parallel to their street. By this point in the day, it was a bit dark on this side of the street, but the CVS entrance, located around the corner, was lit up.

As she was parking, she noticed a man outside the store, and he walked past the front of her vehicle. He was talking, but since she was playing loud music in her car, she couldn’t hear what he said and assumed he was talking on the phone. Nothing seemed out of the ordinary.

Before she got out of the car, her husband called, and she saw the man begin walking toward the corner closest to the store entrance. She got out of the car while updating her husband on their children’s flu situation, letting him know she was about to pick up some prescriptions at CVS.

As she approached the store entrance, where the man was still standing, he kindly asked her if she knew where Main Street was. She was still on the phone, but she acknowledged the phone and told him she did, assuming that he was just asking her to point him in the right direction. Her phone had a bright pink case, and she continued holding the phone up to her ear so the man could see that she was on the phone with someone.

She analyzed the situation and noticed that the man stood directly in front of a pillar and a garbage can. Around the corner, where she needed to walk to enter the store, there was a propane cage and Red Box directly against the wall of CVS. Since she needed to pass by him, she realized that she would be close enough that he could harm her if he wanted to.

After explaining where Main Street was, the man asked her if she could give him a ride to the homeless shelter, adding that it was freezing and he didn’t want to sleep outside. In response, she offered her sympathies but refused to give him a ride, instead suggesting that she purchase gloves and a blanket. She also mentioned that he could find out if any of the CVS employees could give him a ride to the shelter.

“This guy’s face instantly changed to pure rage. Then right back to pleasant. He said, ‘Well, you know what happens to homeless people stuck outside. You’re going to help me. It’s. Right. Down. The. Street.’ I’m standing there, unsure what to do. My husband is on the phone, asking what’s going on,” she said.
