SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A Sacramento mother is scared for her young family’s safety and wants law enforcement to take action after her Ring doorbell captured a man coming to her door four times in recent weeks, including late at night, claiming to be from social services.
She said she’s called 9-1-1 each time and so far, the sheriff’s office has responded but not cited or arrested the man.READ MORE: Boy, 9, Dies From Injuries Suffered In East Bay Area Train Crash
The series of Ring videos show the man, and also recorded audio of the man.
“Yeah, I’m with social services,” he says in one video.
“You know, I hear a child crying, a little baby,” he says in another video.
You can hear the response from the mother inside.
“You need to leave,” the mother said. “I’m calling the cops.”
She asked CBS13 not to identify her because she fears for her safety.
“I don’t know what to do, how to protect myself, because I have no men at home,” she said.
She says each time the man has come to her home, her husband has been gone. She’s been home alone with her four children. She believes the man knows it.READ MORE: Homicide Investigators Investigate Suspicious Death On Village Centre Drive In Sacramento
“He keeps wanting to come in, you know, because he keeps saying, ‘I want to come in, I need to come in,’ and he’s claiming to be from social services,” she said.
CBS13’s Steve Large went to the man’s home to ask him why he keeps knocking on the family’s door.
“I don’t go over there and irritate them, I go over there once in a while to see if somebody is OK,” the man said.
“Did the sheriff’s department tell you not to go there anymore?” Large said.
“They did, so I said, ‘OK, I won’t do it, I won’t go there anymore,” the man said.
“But you went there yesterday?” Large asked.
“No, it wasn’t yesterday,” the man said.
Sacramento attorney Mark Reichel is an expert in California Civil Harassment orders. He believes this man is breaking state law, and even if deputies don’t arrest him, a civil harassment order can be filed against him, and a judge would grant it.MORE NEWS: Electra Fire: Mandatory Evacuation Zone Expanded In Amador, Warnings In Effect For Calaveras
“This repeated annoyance and disturbing her, at that house when the husband’s gone, it’s a pattern, it’s predictable, it’s not right,” Reichel said.
