So I leaving the third floor of the library last night walking past those halls of study rooms and whatnot when this 40ish year old, disgusting, foul smelling, toothless black man jumps out at me and said in a shaky voice, "Hey, uhhh. I need to talk to you! Come back here!"

Immediately, I was freaked out because he was so obviously high. He reeked off marijuana. His voice was shaky and he was studdering and not looking at my eyes when he spoke. I said, "I can't, I need to go to the ladies room.." So I walked (rather hastily) away towards the elevators, after I hit the button, I turned around and noticed he was still standing there, looking at me.

Then he started waving for me to 'come here' and I looked away. But I could tell he had started walking towards me. I jumped in the elevator and began jabbing the "Close Door" button completely scared.

So when I got to the first floor, I went to the Circulation/Reserve desk and told the student worker, "Okay, this is going to sound crazy, but I think there is a high homeless man on the third floor." I told him everything, and he just looked at me like I was a complete idiot and said, "Yeah, uhm. I'll go check on it."

Naturally, the second I left the library, I called UPD. They took an accurate description and called me back thirty minutes later to get my information for a report. And that was it. (They didn't find him).

So, the moral of the story is, there is a drug-induced psychotic bum lurking in our library. Just so you all know..
