DARIEN – Darien Police are warning residents to be on the lookout for anyone knocking on their door unannounced seeking to do repair work, asking to gain entry to a residence to check utilities or asking residents to step outside to inspect another portion of their property, according to a Darien Police Department news release.

Police advise residents to not allow anyone entry that they have not personally contacted to arrange service, according to the release.

The Darien Police received a report at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 21 in the 1000 block of Park Crest Drive from a resident who alleges that two men rang her door bell and said they were from Comcast and were placing cable in the back yard, the release stated.

When the resident told the subjects they were not allowed in her yard, the men left the area in a white pickup truck, according to police.

The victim alleges that the men were between the ages of 30 and 40 and wearing neon green t-shirts with Comcast logos. One man was heavy set in weight and the other male was thin, police said.

Comcast confirmed that there were no repair crews in the area, according to police.
