Homeless man stayed at Minn. high school

UPI News Service, 01/21/2005 

A 21-year-old homeless man found refuge in Minnesota's Apple Valley High School for at least two weeks, the Minneapolis Star Tribune said Thursday.

Francisco Serrano slept in the auditorium, showered in the gym, hid food in a locker and may have attended some classes in the southeast-metro-area high school because he had no place to go, the paper said.

"Anywhere I could hide," Serrano said by phone from a Dakota County jail Wednesday. "No place to stay, no family at all. I became homeless."

His plan fell apart, however, after a librarian reported him. Serrano is due in court Friday on a misdemeanor charge of trespassing on school property, the paper said.

Parents of the 2,300 students enrolled at Apple Valley High School had expressed concern and sympathy when they read about Serrano, Principal Steve Denegaar said.

Denegaar said the student, who had attended the school for his sophomore year, was not a danger to anyone.

"It's very sad and unfortunate that we have a young man with nowhere to go," he said.
