SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — A woman said she was sitting at home Wednesday night when she heard her front door open. 

“We hear the doorbell ring, and we didn't answer it right away,” said Dejeanette Williams. 

She said when she walked out, she came face to face with a stranger on her doorstep.

“He would have had to come up here, open the door, and by the time he heard us coming, the dogs got out,” said Williams.

She said she asked the guy why he opened her door. 

“He insisted he didn't open the door, but we clearly heard him open the door because my thought was, oh someone is coming in,” said Williams. 

Just this week, residents in Point Loma experiencing something similar. A man entering a home through an unlocked door. Williams suspects the guy was doing the same.

“My thought is once we didn't open right away, he was checking the doors,” said Williams. 

She said the guy handed her a flyer and then walked away. 

10News contacted the company on the flyer who confirmed they had workers around that area Wednesday. They said they talked with the man who told them he did not open the door. The company said they do background checks on all their employees. 

“I think when it happened, you're kind of like did that just happen,” said Williams. 

She said whether the man's intentions were true or not, she said how the guy acted was not ok. 

“It's never going to be ok to enter someone's home, I think to do that you're up to no good,” said Williams. 

Police responded to the scene. They said they don't have enough evidence of a crime to investigate.
