Winnipeg Police CrestA Tyndall Park homeowner says men twice tried to get into his home over three days by posing as something they’re not.

Winnipeg police said a man knocked on the door of the home at about 2 p.m. on Saturday, June 1 and tried to get in by claiming to be from a local utility company. The man was not wearing a uniform, nor could he provide I.D., so the homeowner refused. The man left in a black van with tinted windows.

Two days later, two men claiming to be conducting a home inspection tried the same thing. The homeowner again refused to let them in, and they left in a white “expensive-looking” car.

Police are looking for three Asian males, all with short dark hair, clean shaven and with a strong accent. The first is described as between 30-40 years old, about 5’8″ tall with a medium build. The second is 30-40, about 5’10” tall with a heavy build. The third is 20-30 years old, 5’6″ tall with a medium build.
