Lovejoy Fountain
Other - please describe below
Illegal Activity
For three weeks a man has been sleeping all night next to Lovejoy Fountain, mostly at base of stairs on south side of the fountain. He is a small man, slightly balding, wears a red shirt & jeans, has white sleeping bag. When not sleeping he plays in the water, walks around talking to himself. He's mostly alone.
The man I described as sleeping by Lovejoy Fountain spends much of his day near the fountain. To me, his behavior is odd and disturbing: talking to himself (sometimes ranting & raving) to himself, sitting in the water, making strange gestures with his hands. I'd guess he might be schizophrenic.
