Oscar Graetz, a volunteer for Brothers & Sisters Perth, a homelessness organization that offers provisions to those struggling, told BuzzFeed News that the team were talking to Jess when Roose approached them.

After hearing Jess's story, Roose withdrew the money and gave it to her, saying, "Go home."

Graetz said that prior to this Jess had recently reconnected with her family and wanted to return to her home country of New Zealand with her partner. They were both begging on the street in hope of raising money to do so.

Graetz said that since the event at the weekend, the group have not seen Jess or her partner and cannot confirm if they've returned to New Zealand.
