On the afternoon of Monday, June 4, 2018, a 15 year-old Warminster resident reported that a white male, 40-50 years of age, medium build, wearing a red short-sleeve polo shirt and khaki pants, knocked on the resident's front door and stated that they were selling replacement windows. The subject was not wearing/displaying any form of identification. The reporting resident also had a Township-issued 'No Solicitation' placard displayed on the front door of their home. After the resident, who was home alone, advised the subject to leave, the subject proceeded to enter the residence through the front door, and began talking about window replacement and inspecting windows in the home. The resident continued to advise the subject to leave for several minutes, however the subject refused, and continued inspecting windows inside of the home. The subject eventually exited the home and was observed leaving the area in a dark colored SUV, unknown make/model. The subject did not provide any information to the resident about what, if any, company they may have been representing. Anyone with information as to the identity of this suspect or company is asked to contact the Warminster Police at (215) 672-1000. Callers may remain anonymous.
