NORTH GRANADA HILLS AREA ALERT

Residential neighborhood in the vicinity of Zelzah and Rexbon (North of Rinaldi).

The incident occurred on today’s date at approximately 3 pm.

Consistent with the “knock-knock” burglary method the resident answered the door and was confronted by the suspect who stated he was looking for his workout partner named Anthony.

When turned away by the homeowner the suspect pulled a hoodie over his head and fled in a Black Range Rover that was staged nearby.

Noteworthy is that it appears the suspect used an electronic jamming device to interfere with the residents Ring Alert system and as a result the incident was not caught on camera.

The suspect is described as a young Male African/American 16/22 yrs with a secondary vehicle (Black SUV) also staged across the street of the residence.

Please remember to always lock your doors, remain vigilant, work with your neighbors and be highly suspicious of strangers knocking on doors.

The “knock knock” method obviously refers to individuals ringing the doorbell as well and, as in most cases, when confronted by the homeowner these individuals will use a lame excuse as to why they are there.

In today’s event, in particular, I have no doubt the homeowner prevented a residential burglary from occurring.
