This from a Swellesley reader we know, who filed a police report about the incident:
A guy came to my door wearing an Xfinity fleece. Said he was trying to get a “signal” to do work in the area. Wanted to use my signal. He also pointed out all the packages I had on my front porch. He had no ID, just the xfinity fleece.
I told him he could not use my signal, but he told me he was going to shut the network in the area when he got a signal.
I had a bad feeling after he left and called Xfinity and then the police.
Xfinity said they had no tech in the area. He wasn’t in an Xfinity truck but a sedan. Have no idea if he was casing our house or trying to steal packages or whatever. He parked his car over by our mailbox, well out of sight of our front door.
(Note: We followed up with Wellesley Police, which had not had any other reports as of mid-week.)
