Pacifica Police were called to Linda Mar Boulevard on Sunday to a report that two men had knocked on a resident’s door at 10 p.m. Saturday demanding money because they ran out of gas.
They were “very confrontational” and “neighbors say it has happened to them also,” according to the reporting party in the Oct. 21 Pacifica Police log.
On Monday, Pacifica Police were dispatched to Anza Drive to yet another report that at least three males in their late teens or early 20s knocked on a resident’s door at 6:45 a.m. yelling “give me some coke.”
Pacifica resident Marci Haas says this has been happening to residents in the Linda Mar area since last Wednesday.
“People have been getting woken up late at night and very early in the morning by a group of males banging on their front doors, ringing the door bell and either demanding money for gas or yelling really loud that they want cocaine money,” she said.
According to Haas, her co-worker who also lives in the Linda Mar area called the Pacifica Police about it because it’s happened two times to her within the past week that someone has knocked on her door asking for money.
She describes the two males she saw on her porch as “ghetto dudes, wearing grey and black hoodies with hoods on and saggy pants.”
Haas has heard five stories so far, she said, all complaining about the same reoccurring issue and in one instance, perhaps unrelated, the men were wearing Halloween masks.
Has this happened to you? If so, what neighborhood do you live in?
