A woman took matters into her own hands Friday morning when she encountered a man who had illegally entered her home on Tasa Place in the Hart Highlands.
The woman encountered the intruder in her entranceway holding her purse. The woman grabbed the purse and pushed the man out the front door. The initial call to police was made to the non-emergency line, slowing police response. No injuries have been reported and it appears nothing was taken. Patrols for the suspect were negative.
The suspect is described as:
- Caucasian male
- Thin build
- Short dirty blonde hair
- Wearing a royal blue golf shirt, black pants and a black lanyard with what appeared to be an ID tag.
Although it has not been confirmed, investigators are looking into the possibility that the suspect was posing as a door-to-door solicitor. The investigation is continuing.
Police would like to remind the public:
- Always lock your doors, even when you are at home;
- Immediately call 9-1-1 when an incident occurs;
- Be sure to request to see identification of any door to door solicitors.Legitimate sales persons will have identification and will provide you with their name.
Police say there are a number of door-to-door sales persons in the community at the moment, and they will be expected throughout the summer.
