Two families said they encountered a strange person in the 400 block of Taylor Street at about 1:25 a.m. on Thursday.
A 31-year-old man told police he heard footsteps on his roof while watching television but didn’t look outside because “he did not want to spook the subject,” according to a Sandusky police report.
While police searched the area, the man’s neighbor came outside and said he left an upright ladder leaning against his house, which is how the suspect probably got on the man’s roof.
The neighbor said his 15-year-old daughter also spotted the suspect on the roof, looking into her bedroom window. The suspect ran off after she went to tell her parents.
