Police are warning people of a man posing as an alarm employee who attempted to enter an Oshkosh home Wednesday afternoon.
A resident reported to police that the man came to the back door of their home in the 400 block of West New York Avenue at 12:22 p.m. The man, who was taller than 6 feet, in his mid-30s and wearing a long tan coat and hat, said he had paperwork for resident's alarm system and asked the resident to open the door and take it, said Joe Nichols, spokesman for the Oshkosh Police Department.
The resident refused to open the door, but the man persisted. He eventually left, Nichols said.
Oshkosh Police checked the area, but were unable to find the man.
Anyone who sees the man should contact Oshkosh Police, (920) 236-5700, or 911 if the man attempts to enter their home.
Nichols said people should not let the man inside their homes
