STAMFORD, Conn., -- A Norwalk resident has high praise for Stamford's residents and police.

After he was charged by Stamford Police Wednesday afternoon for panhandling in the area of North State Street and Canal Street, Wali Rasheed, 62, said he prefers being in Stamford "because the people and the police are nicer," he told the officer.

Despite the compliment police did charge him with panhandling - but did it nicely.
