We live in the 4200 block of NE 33rd Street and on October 21, a suspicious man, in his 40's, rang the doorbell, then knocked loudly on the door and also knocked very loudly on the glass panes of the door.
Since there was persistent loud knocking, I opened the door, and there was a man who said in a loud voice "Hi, how are you on this beautiful day?"
I took out my phone and said I was going to take his picture, and he cowered, quickly hid his face, and hurriedly walked away down my walk to the street.
I followed him for a moment and he walked down towards the basketball court, looking back at me.
I called 911, and they said they would send a car to patrol the area, which I never saw.
