Submitted By Lt. Matias Pardo, Union City PD
On Monday, November 2, 2015 at around 2:00 pm,Êa resident in her home near the 300 block of Whipple Road heard a knock at the front door. The resident opened the door and was greeted by a subject. The subject told the resident he worked for PG&E and requested to see her gas bill. She advised the subject that she did not have gas in her residence.
The subject then told her she would need to pay him $145 or her electricity would be shut off. The resident then asked her to use her cell phone. When she refused, he became angry and began to yell at her. A family member came to the door to see what was the commotion. The subject then became courteous, shook hands with the family members and left the residence.ÊAfter the subject left, the resident called PG&E to inquire if anybody was in the area collecting bills, to which the resident was instructed to call the police.
A similar incident occurred on Stone Street a short time later, which is approximately a mile from Whipple Road. The subject matched the description of the subject on Whipple Road. The subject appears to be black male adult in his 40s, wearing a blue or purple shirt with the word ÒIce CreamÓ on it, and jeans.
No crime was committed; however, Union City Police Department wants the public aware of this suspicious circumstance.
