The Laurelhurst Blog received this information:
We live across the street from St Bridget's Church on NE 50th Street and on October 19, our neighbors told us that around 3pm, they saw a man climbing over their front yard fence.
When they asked him about it, he said he was doing some work at our house which wasn't true. He then walked between our homes and into our backyard before disappearing.
He was described to me as Hispanic with a ponytail. One of our other neighbors reported the incident to the police.
Other neighbors have reported seeing a homeless man, not Andrei, regularly sleeping at the entrance to St. Stephens Church on NE 45th Street.
