  1. 36xx Calumet
    We posted on the neighborhood Facebook group and also Next door. Currently awaiting police to come and take a statement.
    I noticed our front window screen sitting on the sidewalk when I got home at about 3pm. Checked the security camera that looks at the front door and window. At about 10:30 AM, African American male probably late 40s, rang the door bell twice, stepped back and looked up at the house. He walked away and about 10 minutes later came back and rang the doorbell again. He then went over to the window and pulled the screen out and tried to open the window. The window was locked and he either got discouraged or something startled him because he then walked away.
    He looked at the camera several times and rang the doorbell. Hopefully there are prints somewhere that can be taken.
    We will now certainly be more cautious and to set the alarm when we are away!

    • Scary stuff Michelle! Glad you’re OK and he didn’t get in. Thank you for alerting as many neighbors as possible to the threat. Good idea about the alarm. Have you also considered hooking your camera up to the Philly Police Department’s Safecam network? Here’s a link. In any event, I hope they catch him soon!
