I live near corner of 97th and 7th NW, near the Split End Salon.
This afternoon around 2:40PM, a young African American male (medium height, jeans, dark jacket) came and rang our doorbell. We didn't get to the door right away and by the time we did, he was already on his way down the driveway. He left, but then came back a few minutes later and went to the side of the house opposite the door while talking on his cell phone. We yelled out the window and asked him what he wanted. We couldn't see him at first and it took him a few moments to answer. He then came into view of the window and asked if some guy lived here (can't remember name he used). We said no and he left.
Very suspicious since A) he came back and B) he didn't go to front door.
4-5 years ago, some kids tried to break into my house with same approach. First the doorbell and then trying to get into our backyard.
If you are in Crown Hill or Ballard, has anything like this happened to you recently?
