Buffalo Police have issued a warning to be alert for persons posing as utility workers attempting to gain entry into homes.  The latest incident took place recently in the Kaisertown area of the city. 

The most recent incident follows one in December where a man claiming to be a utility worker entered a home on Normal Avenue and attacked a woman.

Buffalo Police advise that you always ask for ID from any utility worker who attempts to enter your home.  They add you should be especially suspicious when a utility worker comes to your home during night time hours.

All utility workers are required to carry official identification.
