The Nelson County Sheriff’s Department is asking residents to be extra careful when allowing strangers into their home.
A white male posing as a Dawn dish detergent salesman approached a woman at her home in the Lovingston area asking her to participate in a survey that could take an hour to complete. The woman did not let him in and the man left in a dark blue SUV; two other people appeared to be in the vehicle.
On Thursday, in nearby Buckingham County, a man claiming to sell Glade air fresheners stabbed a woman in her home after she told him she was not interested. The attacker kicked the door in, police say, and may have been driving a dark colored SUV, possible a Chevy Suburban or Tahoe.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NCSD at 434-263-7050.
