Scott police seek man wanted in attempted home invasion
Scott police are looking for a man who allegedly pretended to be a police officer during an attempted home invasion last week.
The incident happened on Feb. 20 in the 500 block of Carothers Avenue, township police said on Facebook.
According to police, they got a call about a man pounding on an apartment door. When the people inside asked who it was, the man shouted “police.”
The occupants did not open the door. The man fled on foot and then is believed to have gotten into a car.
The car appeared to be a white Chevrolet Cruze with front-end damage on the left side and missing a rear hubcap.
Anyone who can identify the man or the vehicle is asked to contact Scott Township police at 412-276-7725, ext. 242, or call 911. Callers can remain anonymous.
