The Shawnee Police Department is asking residents to be on alert after a suspicious man claiming to be with SPD Crime Prevention knocked on a woman's door and tried to get information.

Cpl. Vivian Lozano said the incident was reported in the 800 block of North Kickapoo.

The male, who was described as being tall and about 180 pounds, was wearing a blue jacket and glasses when he spoke to the woman. He had a flier that had “SPD” across the top, but the woman could not read the rest of it, Lozano said.

“Be aware...we want to bring awareness,” she said, adding the man is not affiliated with the police department.

She said anyone from the police department would be in a police uniform or have proper identification.

Lozano said residents are reminded to keep their doors locked and shouldn't open their doors to people they don't know.

And while no crime has been committed, Lozano said anyone with information or similar reports can contact police, 405-273-2122.
