Roanoke Panhandler Assaults a Citizen on Film



Here is the video (might require flash player to view) that everyone is talking about. June 4th, 2017, a citizen was filming known Roanoke panhandler Cheryl Dunlap when she confronted him by crossing the street, taking what appeared to be a professional camera lens, throwing it away, then proceeds to spray him with something (we believe it looks more like a paint spray can or something to that effect)

The filmer, Roger M., then proceeded to push her away after she came towards him again while he said to stop, as you can hear on the video. She pulled out her smart phone, ear pieces and lit a cigarette while police arrived on the scene.

Panhandling has become a major issue since the summer of 2016, Roanoke has seen a 315% increase in people panhandling since federal court deemed panhandling under the blanket "freedom of speech" in a court case in Charlottesville, VA.

This is not the first time this known panhandler /scammer has been in trouble with the law. Just in Roanoke alone, she has had more than 60+ court records not including the ones in Christiansburg, Roanoke City and Bristol.

You can also find the direct link on the Roanoke Checkpoints Facebook page, which is not affiliated with our page in any way.

All information about this post was pulled from social media, video and two of the three images below came from the Roanoke CheckPoints Facebook page.

You can often find her throughout Roanoke City and Roanoke County just about everyday. Many people post on her whereabouts on social media groups almost each day. She has brought a large amount of attention to herself recently with the use of a pure bred dachshund puppy she's been carrying with her recently.

She was out at the same location the morning of June 5th 2017 with her puppy as seen in the video below from someone posting it online. We recently wrote about the debate on using animals with panhandling as the same person was using her puppy just a week ago.
