A creepy couple of unwelcome visitors menaced a Portsmouth, Ohio woman on Saturday afternoon. The bizarre encounter began around 3 pm on Saturday. A Williams Street woman called police to report a strange pair of unwelcome callers. She said a man and woman that she’d never seen before just walked onto her porch.
When the woman asked the pair what they wanted, the female half of the couple told her ‘She wanted to see when the call reunion was.’ The suspicious resident told the strange woman she had no idea who she was and requested the pair leave her porch immediately.
Here’s where it starts to get really scary. The strange couple didn’t leave. The woman picked up a pair of garden shears from the porch. These were pretty large shears, the resident described them as being about 2 feet long. The resident told the creepy woman that the shears didn’t belong to her and she needed to put them down.
The strange woman said, “Yes, they are mine and you can’t make me leave.”
By this time the Williams Street resident had just about had enough and told the strange pair she was calling the police. That was enough to get the couple to leave. But before they left, they stopped to check the woman’s car doors.
How To Scare Off Creeps
So what can you do if weirdoes show up at your door? Experts say one tactic is to call for someone in the house, even if no one else is really there. “Boys, there are some strangers on our porch, call the police!”
Tell the creeps you have security cameras trained on them, even if you don’t. Tell them you’ve activated your home alarm. Don’t be embarrassed to scream for help. People like that normally don’t want to draw attention to themselves.
