The Sacramento Police Department is alerting residents of Natomas to be aware of a suspicious subject.
On May 19, 2011, at around 6 p.m., a subject went up to a house near Loggerhead Way and Myotis Drive in North Natomas and contacted the female resident. The male subject indicated he was looking for his lost dog but hesitated when asked to describe the dog. The male then walked off and got into a vehicle without contacting any other residents. When the victim went to talk to another neighbor about the suspicious subject, some children in the neighborhood indicated the same subject had approached them on Tuesday and tried to get a young boy to walk over to his car.
The subject is described as a male White in his 20's, 5'10", medium build, reddish unshaven facial hair, wearing a black baseball cap, long sleeve shirt, khaki shorts, and sandals. The suspect was seen driving a dark 4-door Chevy Blazer with tinted windows.
As a reminder, the following safety considerations should be followed:
- Call in all suspicious subjects and/or activity
- Do not open your door to strangers
- Talk to your children about what to do when contacted by strangers (stranger danger)
Although we do not know the intent of the subject, we are urging residents to contact the police department if the subject is seen at (916) 264-5471 - non emergency or 9-1-1 if you feel someone is in immediate danger.
