“As I ran towards the alley door, I saw the guy running,” Mielke posted. “I called police, and they handled the report in the proper manner. I’m posting to remind everyone to be cautious, always be on alert and call police if you see suspicious behavior or movement. Never try to go after them. Let police do their job. Again, be alert and keep your doors closed and locked.”
