LOS ANGELES - A pastor was arrested outside Mayor Eric Garcetti's official residence Thursday on suspicion of felony stalking after spending several days advocating for the city to house homeless people during the coronavirus pandemic.
Sherman Manning leads the Yes We Can! Worship Center in South Los Angeles and streamed multiple protests on Facebook from outside the Getty House in Windsor Square this week calling for a better response to the homeless crisis during the pandemic, according to The Times.
Los Angeles Police Department Officer J. Chaves confirmed that Manning was arrested for felony stalking, but could not confirm that it was outside the Getty House.
Manning hopes Garcetti will house people in need at hotels and the convention center, The Times reported.
The District Attorney's Office had not filed charges against Manning as of Thursday afternoon.
