Lakewood neighborhood asking for help identifying man they say is suspicious (Surveillance Video)

A neighborhood in Lakewood is asking for the public’s help identifying a man they say appeared suspicious.

The man, who appears to wearing a badge or some other sort of item on a chain, was seen walking in the Charming Way area last night – after regular business hours.

One neighbor wrote, “Last night at about 7 pm on our block, Charming Way, this guy walks onto the block and approached a kid asking how many families live here. He was acting very strange. Walked up and down the block a few times. Looks very suspicious.”

Neighbors say they showed it to police, but police had no knowledge of the man or what he was doing in the quiet neighborhood.

  1. Is this another “suspicious” amazon delivery guy who happened to randomly ask an honest curious question to a child?

    (Not long ago, people were posting about suspicious people, driving white van and wearing yellow/orange vests, taking pictures of kids and people’s houses).

    What could he possibly be up to by asking a child such a question?

      “Relax” ???

      That goes against the whole concept of “if you see something say something”

      I’m not saying people should panic, but better safe than sorry.

      • By “relax” I was saying that people shouldn’t panic, so we are on the same page there, I didn’t say not to say something if you see something.
        I was saying that “something” is not always something, and if it made it to TLS headline it means that alot of people did panic before thinking rationally and don’t realize that most non-jews find our way of life very intrigueing and therefore have alot of curious and harmless questions.

        In this case, he may have been expressing his wonder, because he had so many pkgs to deliver to such a small area.
        (I’ve had delivery men ask me the same question).

        Is that not a fair assesment as to what may have occurred?

        Can you think of any other reason why someone would ask a child such a question (as if the child knows the number).

        I have no problem that people found it suspicious, I am just trying to spread awareness.

  2. Regarding my previous comment, I can clearly see a white van -most commonly driven by amazon delivery personnel- straight ahead, and it looks like the man is coming from that direction.
    The thing around his neck is probably his amazon ID. I’m not sure why they drive around in unmarked vans without at least an ID sticker on them, but this looks pretty innocent to me.

    Regarding the van, Amazon does have the same vans that are blue and have a yellow/orange Amazon logo prominently placed on them.
    These white ones may be vans that haven’t had a chance to be painted yet or are privately owned as alot of amazong delivery personnel are outsourced and do not work directly for amazon.

    As I touched upon earlier, there still should be at least a clearly visible magnet or some type of Amazon ID on these white vans, as the way they look definitely begs for suspicion to be raised.

  3. @lkwdguy that white van belongs to someone who lives on the block. He was not an amazon delivery guy. We have surveillance videos from a few houses on the block. He’s not delivering anything

  4. I live on the block as well and as stated the van is a neighbors And he’s definitely not an Amazon driver Amazon drivers do not walk up and down the block a few times with no packages in hand

  5. @LkwdGuy you sound so sure in your comments that you know best. You should relax!! You dont know the full picture. And it Definitely is suspicious!!
