SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- South Bend residents are running into more pushy panhandlers these days, according to South Bend police.
Police said they've been getting more complaints about aggressive begging tactics, and they're urging residents not to give handouts, as it can make the problem worse.
Instead, you can give to a number of charities in South Bend that help those with verified need who are homeless.
One of those organizations is the Center for the Homeless on S. Michigan Street.
