Nutley police issue neighborhood crime alert

Nutley Police Department Alert

— A Regents Drive resident has told police an unidentified man came to her door May 16 at around 7 p.m., and a 7-year-old boy answered it.

A white man, age 30-40, wearing a white shirt and black slacks asked the child if his parents were home. The child told the man they were not home, but would be home from work at 8 p.m. The man then left the area and returned at 8 p.m.

When he spoke to the child’s mother (who was now home), he inquired about her alarm system, claiming it was faulty. He had no identification and/or a company name to offer the resident.

After he left, she called police. The suspect was not located.

Police are asking parents to urge their children not to open doors to anyone without a parent being present. If anyone has had a similar incident, immediately contact Detective Lt. Steven Rogers, of the Nutley Police Department's Detective Bureau, at 973-284-4940.
