Residents warned of man going door-to-door asking for baby formula

By Brad Underwood - bio | email

HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - He's an unwanted house guest in Hamilton asking for help by way of baby formula.

Over the past week, a man is going door to door begging with the same story, but those who've encountered the man say something is not quite right.

Its not something you hear about everyday.

A man wearing a blue hoodie and dirty jeans is knocking on doors late at night.

But the Hamilton Police department says this isn't exactly something new.

"I haven't seen him since, but it was actually a strange situation, he acted really nervous. He didn't try to come in but he still acted really strange and really nervous," said one witness, who asked to remain anonymous.

He is described as a 5-foot-8 with medium build, white male with a goat-tee, targeting homes and apartments in the Hamilton and Fairfield area.

"He was also out of breath, so that should have been a red flag, but unfortunately she still let him in, she still talked to him," said another witness. "He said he needed to go to Walgreens to get the formula, because it is on prescription. At that point, my mom said no and then he ran out."

Hamilton Police say, they heard reports of a man entering homes after the September windstorms, claiming to be a city worker.

"We've heard this before, in some of the neighborhoods in Hamilton, so if you get someone coming up to your door that late at night and get that funny feeling in your stomach, don't answer the door," said Rich Burkhardt with Hamilton Police.

Some gave him money, but so far he hasn't been violent.

"I basically just shut the door, and I guess he went away, because he didn't knock back or anything like that," said a witness.

Hamilton Police say they haven't taken any reports from residents about this man. But if this happens to you, and you feel threatened or unsafe, call 911 and an officer will come out and take a report.
