MOULTRIE — A Moultrie woman reported someone knocked on her back door Wednesday night claiming to be a police officer.

Ashley Watson, of Seventh Avenue Southwest, reported someone started knocking on her back door at 8:57 p.m. Wednesday. The man claimed he was a police officer and needed to search her house for an escaped convict.

Watson stated she did not feel comfortable opening the door for the man, so she called 911 instead. When a real Moultrie police officer arrived, he could not find anyone outside the house. Watson stated she never saw the person but stated he sounded like a black male.
