For a Middletown mom, this was no ordinary Saturday.
“The whole experience was just really, really unnerving,” said Kathryn McCormack.
Still shaking, McCormack told NBC Connecticut about the scare she had this morning.
“I hear a knock on my door…the door opened, and a male voice said, ‘hello?’
The single mother wasn’t expecting anyone, yet standing in her doorway was a man in a uniform.
“A Comcast uniform with the gray shirt, and he had some sort of equipment in his hand.”
A random door knock wouldn’t usually be a big deal, but McCormack said this time, something was different.
“He just stood there and stared at me…I told him multiple times, ‘this isn’t where you’re supposed to be.’”
McCormack said she had to tell him that several times before he finally left.
“It didn’t seem to bother him that he had just come into my apartment unannounced,” said McCormack.
After leaving her apartment, McCormack said the man didn’t check any other units in her building—he just got in a Comcast van and left. That’s when McCormack called Comcast; the company told her none of its crews were scheduled to be in her area today.
The Middletown Police Dept. confirmed it was notified about what happened to McCormack, but declined to comment.
McCormack said while she’s still rattled by the experience, she feels lucky nothing happened.
“You don’t know what can happen, especially with a child. People out there are crazy,” said McCormack.
A rep with Comcast said the company will be cooperating in the investigation with Middletown police.
