Lockport resident spots an intruder outside his apartment building

LOCKPORT – A man in the 5700 block of Glendale Drive contacted the Niagara County Sheriff Department on Tuesday after he spotted a masked man, possibly armed with a knife, outside his apartment at 1:30 a.m.

The resident told deputies that he noticed a rear motion detector light go on in the parking lot and saw a man looking into the bedroom window. The resident yelled at the man and he fled towards Strauss Road. He said the man was wearing a black ski mask, a black hooded sweatshirt and black trousers. He said it appeared that the man was carrying a knife.

The resident said his girlfriend had been having issues with the father of her child and suggested that he could be a suspect. A check of the area had negative results, according to a sheriff report.
