I live in Maple Leaf and around 6:30 p.m. a tall black man in a Seahawks hat, blue coat and khaki’s knocked on my door. I didn’t answer.

I cracked my blinds and politely Pagessaid ” I’m not interested.” He went on to say that he wasn’t selling anything, more that I needed to “vote” for him for something.

I said that I was busy, and to please leave. He said NO and was really aggressive. I said that I was going to call the police if he didn’t leave. He screamed in my window ” I don’t give a F**K!”.

I called 911, who said they would go and find him.

Honestly, it was terrifying.

Please keep an eye out for him.
