This is the kind of thing that happens almost daily here in Lexington. Not really the 'Police" sweatshirt thing, but just home invasions. I'm serious, it seems like there is at least one home invasion a day here. The latest one was last night,I didn't get the details. A home invasion last week where one man posed as a cable TV employee to gain access to the house. When they got in, they placed a plastic bag over the homeowners head. They stole some items, but homeowner only suffered a cut to his head.
I have learned not to open the door unless I know the situation. And, well, let's just say I always have a little helper nearby.
