Knock knock burglars – how to prevent home invasion using security screen doors
Knock knock burglars – how to prevent home invasion using security screen doors. I would like to share an incident that happened to my family about two weeks ago:
My daughter and I were working on the computer in the front living room late at night around 11:30 pm. Some gang banger knocked on the front door and we did not open the door. It’s like they want to say knock knock burblar and expecting me to say who’s there. We have one of those small hinged peep doors. Not knowing who it was, I proceeded to open the small opening to look outside.
There was a young man standing there
There was a juvenile delinquent standing there in his late teens to early twenties and he was dressed in a dark hoodie. Then, I had surprised him by only opening the small peep door. He didn’t know that the peep door was there, because it was concealed by our Christmas wreath that was mounted around it. Either way he was not expecting it! He then asks me “Ummmm Ummm is there a park right here?” So, I responded, “What do you want?! There isn’t any darn park around here! What do you really want?! It’s 11:30 at night and why are you knocking on my front door this late?!”
Another person riding a bike
In addition, I noticed that there was another person riding by on their bicycle, and he was wearing dark clothing too. Then I totally realized that this guy with his homeboys were going to attempt to rob us!! If I had opened the door, they would have pushed their way in by home invasion. He kept moving his hands in the pockets of his hoodie and I couldn’t tell if he had a gun or a knife. Right away I knew that this was a serious situation. Everything was in slow motion as my adrenaline was pumping. He then proceeded to ask, “Well isn’t there a park on…..” He named the cross streets. I responded with “Yes, if you know the area then, why are you knocking on my door and asking me?” He then took off running as fast as he could up our street.
My wife and my oldest daughter went out to the car approximately 15 minutes before. She saw somebody sitting across the street on the curb wearing dark clothing. It is my conclusion that this person assumed that there were only two females in the house and they thought they could somehow attempt robbery! They did not expect a man to answer the door, but I assume that they were expecting someone to actually open the door. I also assume that they are not very smart!!! You have got to be one dumb gang banger to expect someone to open the door so late at night!!!
Calling the Police
Finally I called the Police to report the attempted robbery! So, they sent out a couple of officers to assess the situation. They were going to have squad cars patrol the area to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. Now I know that these types of burglars are known as “Knock Knock Burglars.” Many news stories are published about this type of home invasion, and on one article it documents that many gangs are known to commit this type of crime. Shaking my head from side to side!!! Therefore, after the police left, I realized that I need to install a security screen door. Why not? My own company offers security screen doors and we install them all the time!
