There have been two suspicious incidents involving a Sewall’s Point residence on S. Sewall’s Point Road. Approximately one month ago, a white female with brown hair, driving a black SUV, was found crying in resident’s driveway. The subject in the vehicle informed the resident that they used to live at the residence and her father was terminally ill. She asked for permission to walk around the back of the house and they allowed her to do so. While there, this individual pointed to what she stated were changes to the home.
Yesterday, another female mid-30s, heavier/thick set build, brown hair arrived at the house driving a brown Fiat. She pulled in the driveway and asked to come see the house inside. The teenage son agreed and allowed her into the home. As they walked inside, the woman started telling him she was a previous resident at that location and pointed out very few features of the home. She pointed to the upstairs and stated “That was my room”. After looking around a few more minutes she left.
Both incidents occurred between 2pm and 4pm.
We have investigated this incident with the previous residents of this home. This woman is NOT affiliated with the previous owners. The behavior of this individual is HIGHLY SUSPICIOUS. If you have experienced a similar incident or have any information about this one, please call the Police Department at 772-781-3378.
If someone arrives at your home who you do not know and attempts to draw you out or request entry inside, call 9-1-1 immediately. Don’t let them in your house! Gather as much information as you can. Try to get a good suspect and vehicle description (license plate, make, model), as well as a direction of travel.
The number one way to protect yourself is to not allow someone into your home if you’re unsure about them. It is not rude to refuse strangers access to your home. You should never feel pressured or embarrassed into letting someone in. Please speak with your children and share the same message.
When in doubt, call 9-1-1.
