As I stepped outside my front door, a man walking along the sidewalk asked me if I wanted to buy something that looked like an old metal bird bath that might’ve been removed from someone’s backyard. He claimed that he’d been given it in return for trimming some trees, and he wanted to sell it to me for $30. I called the police dispatcher and reported him walking east toward Parsons Avenue.
He was medium tall white guy, older or maybe his skin had just suffered a lot of sun damage, wearing jeans and a t-shirt. He also had a brightly colored bookbag on his back.
