UPDATE: Even though several people quoted below claim that is man is someone called “Sheeba” I have reason to believe this is NOT him.
Yesterday afternoon (Saturday, Dec 22, 2012) this man was roaming Hillcrest creating a small stir with his odd look and smell. The cardboard mask he was holding up in front of his face made some ill-at-ease. The following quotes from various people were posted about the man on the FH facebook page. (Does anybody have a picture of the mask?)
“Guy walking down Kavanaugh who had face covered with some sort of crazy mask. Scared us to death. Police questioned him inside Kroger where he was still wearing mask. When he left he took mask off.” Looked like he had a huge backpack under his outfit along with some cowboy boots. Kept trying to go in businesses along Kavanaugh.”
“His name is Sheeba and he is a huge hippie. He has done enough acid to drive one insane. Not that bad of a person really.”
“He comes to my doorstep regularly. Recently he showed up at 3 am. He is verbally inappropriate and when asked to leave starts yelling obscenities. I have tried to be nice to him but he is crazy. I think he is harmless but he IS annoying. He showed up two days ago, knocked on my door and tried the doorknob when I did not answer. He then caught my boyfriend’s daughter outside as she was coming home from school and requested that she unlock the door for him. UH YEAH – he’s a little scary. The police were called and he has been told not to darken our doorstep again. He continues to show up every now and again but will be arrested the next time he pops up for a visit!”
“I have been told about Sheeba. He was hit by a car & refused medical treatment which somewhat accounts for the physical impairments, but not mental. Haven’t spoken to him personally, but have been given the impression he isn’t so much dangerous as annoying/invasive (ie odor).”
