NORTH SAANICH — Police are looking for a man after a homeowner in North Saanich reported him standing at his front door.
Sidney North Saanich RCMP say that the homeowner noticed the man acting suspiciously at his front door at around noon on Jan. 23. He opened the door and startled the man “who jumped back several paces,” according to the police report.
The RCMP state when asked what he was doing, the male initially told the homeowner that he was going door to door, offering window washing services.
After the homeowner declined, the man then asked if the homeowner could make an emergency phone call for him.
“The home owner again said no and became suspicious as the male’s story about washing windows and then needing to make an emergency phone call just did not add up,” stated the local RCMP detachment in a media release.
The suspicious male was described by the homeowner as a Black male with a beard, approximately 30 years old, 5’10” with a stocky build. He was wearing a blue jacket with a grey hoodie underneath and gum boots.
