The El Paso County Sheriff's Office received a report of a suspicious incident that occurred in the early morning hours of Oct. 14.
A Gleneagle resident, in the 200 block of Sedona Drive, called the sheriff's office shortly after 2:00 a.m. to report that his neighbor, a woman, had called him and said there were two males banging on her front door. The man turned on his front lights and the two males proceed to hide on the side of the house. The woman called her neighbor back and told him the two males were walking towards his house.
The man saw them walking down the street, shone his flashlight on them and they took off running. Lt. Jeff Kramer, spokesperson for EPSO, said units were dispatched to the area and deputies searched the area but could not find the two individuals.
The woman described the men as skinny, 5 foot 10 inches tall and they were both wearing hooded jackets that covered their head and faces.
Kramer said anytime an incident like this occurs people should not answer their doors. He said it is best to call the sheriff's office immediately at 719-390-5555 or they should call 9-1-1 if someone is trying to break in. He said dispatch will keep the caller on the phone to give instructions.
Kramer said the sheriff's office is not a seeing a rash or pattern of these types of incidents in the Gleneagle area.
