A woman called police to inform them of several disturbing calls she received on Dec. 4. According to the report, the caller told the victim that “I know where you live, I’m gonna come in through the basement” and in another instance, “I’m standing outside.” The victim told police that several of her female co-workers all received similar calls. The woman was able to provide police with a phone number, but she is unsure if it will actually trace back to the alleged suspect.
Victim fends off attackers
