Stranger tries to talk her way into Chelsea woman's home

By Cindy Heflin

Chelsea police are asking for information from any residents who may have seen a woman trying to talk her way into another woman’s home this morning.

Police said a woman wearing a shirt with the words “Angels of Mercy” on it knocked on the door of a home in the 6000 block of Sibley Road shortly before 11 a.m. When the resident answered the door, the woman walked onto the enclose breezeway, Chelsea Police Sgt. Mark Pulford said.

She gave the woman who lives at the home a hug and said she had not seen her in a while. The resident asked the woman who she was, and she answered that she was a new neighbor in the area.

The resident asked her to leave, but the woman tried to stay for a visit. She eventually left the area, riding in the passenger seat of a newer model, white SUV-style vehicle, traveling east on Sibley Road, police said. The resident said she could not see the person driving the vehicle.

The resident told police she was not aware of any new neighbors and had not seen the woman before. She told police the woman is white, heavyset and in her 30s.

Pulford said he is not aware of any similar recent incidents in the city.

Anyone with information on this incident or a similar incident is asked to call the Chelsea Police Department at 734-475-9122.

That woman had a lot of nerve, I don't always remember names, but faces I don't forget. Warning.....don't hug me unless I know you very well. Must have been scarey for the resident, glad she called the Police! Reading this, makes us more aware of things going on, and it could just as well happen in surrounding citys.

"but the woman tried to stay for a visit.". That's pretty gutsy behavior.

Eep you should get a reward good police work on your part. You would think Chelsea PD would have received something from someone regarding that woman.
