Please share this with your friends and neighbors. I wanted to raise awareness regarding a home break in, in the Madison Avenue / Jackson Avenue area of Wallingford.
On Thursday September 12, 2013, an elderly resident in his 90s answered his door to find a man asking for bottles for deposit. The man then brazenly entered the home of the elderly man and took his wallet.
The resident was unharmed, his wife was not home at the time and the police have been notified.
The residents do have family and neighbors nearby for support and they are shaken but OK from the incident. I did want to pass this along, with the family’s permission, to make the adjoining neighborhoods aware and so that people can be a little extra vigilant for themselves and their neighbors.
If anyone has any questions or concerns please call the police non-emergency line at 203 294 2800.
