For the third time in a week, the Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station responded to a call for an unidentified prowler creeping through residents' yards in the early morning hours.
Therefore, deputies will up their patrols in La Cañada And Montrose.
On Halloween, at approximately 3:40 a.m, deputies responded to a possible prowler call in the 600 block of Chatman Place in La Canada, according to a press release from Los Angeles Sheriff's Capt. Mike Parker.
The resident told authorities that the sound of someone walking through her backyard startled her, and woke her up. She looked out the window and saw what appeared to be a man approximately 20 feet from her home. The resident awakened her husband, who yelled out to the man. The man then fled the yard out of sight.
Deputies searched the area but were unable to locate the possible prowler.
Detectives are investigating whether a crime actually occurred and if this incident is related to two other prowler calls earlier during the week in the La Cañada and Montrose area.
Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station has increased patrols in the area, while residents are encouraged to lock their homes and report any suspicious activity to Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station at (818) 248-3464.
