From Kristin Ottolino of Citizens Alert Social Media Network:
Just got word from one of our members that news out of Rockford said to be wary of people coming to your door posing as utility workers.
Near the intersection of Woodstock Rd and Garden Prairie Rd in Garden Prairie yesterday during normal business hours, (yes… daylight), someone posing as a utility worker knocked on a homeowner’s door.
When the homeowner answered, the robber couldn’t produce an I.D., and ultimately tried to knock the homeowner out. The homeowner successfully fought them off.
Unfortunately, this is all the info I was provided, but I thought you should know.
Please be careful.
