Two Concord residents are reporting suspicious males who are knocking on doors, and one homeowner is saying one of the men apparently went into the backyard of a home downtown.
These two cases are unrelated.
The first occurred on Montgomery & Dormer, near Port Chicago & Olivera.
Here are the details from the witness:
I live in North Concord, corner of Montgomery and Dormer. A man knocked on my door repeatedly and quite loud earlier on Thursday. My shepherd got to the door before I could. It took me about 10 seconds to get to the door after the initial knock, and by the time I made it there the man was walking away, fast, looking back. He was tall, dressed in black sweater. He entered a black older model SUV and sped off. I walked outside but I couldn’t see him. I got on my car and drove around the neighborhood in attempt to spot him, no luck. I did not call the police. Hopefully this was just an isolated incident, but it worries me that he sped off as soon as he saw the dog through the glass middle part of my front door. Letting you know so that you may warn the citizens of Claycord.
Thanks for the warning!
The second incident occurred on Ashbury Dr. in downtown Concord around 9:15pm when a Hispanic male adult with dark clothing & a clipboard knocked on the front door, then apparently went into the backyard and was knocking on the bedroom window. No suspect was located by the Concord Police, and no entry was made into the home.
Beware, Claycordians! If you don’t plan to answer your door, always make noise to let the knocker know that somebody is inside the house, and never be afraid to call 9-1-1 if you think you’re in danger.
