Hello all,

Just thought I would share my thoughts on the events that happened today.

I made a quick run to raleys on the paradisevalley side of fairfield, upon my return my wife noticed the very nice homemade no solicitation sign the was screwe down next to the door had been ripped off, we were maybe gone 5-10 minutes. So I get pissed naturally so I start looking around the neighborhood and he happened to be at my next door neighbors, I waited for him to be done and asked him if he had knocked on my door and he sai yes, I asked what he did to my sign and he played clueless
he was claiming to be trying to win some contest and I asked him who was sponsoring it and I heard numerous different poeple, to include his grandma. he said there was other kids in the neighborhood maybe it was one of them, i said lets go find them and we walked down the street. at this point I had his paperwork that had his name,height eye and hair color, bank of america data and tld him I would give it back if he admitted and showed me where the sign was, he said its a felony offense if i kept it and wanted to use a neighbors phone, he went up to the door rang the door bell and as soon as they opened the door he tried to grab the paperwork and he punched me in the face. he was young and had no power in his punch, but he was fast and I am not as fast as I used to be. I called 911 and they came out and got the decription of the kid and gave them all the paperwork that included all this data.

Point is, must be careful when dealing with soliciters, its why I made the sign in the first place, but for someone to ripped it off the front of my house, I could not let that go. chances are the cops wont capture him, even though they have all his data, some bank account info.

I am going to remake the sign and add more screws.

I would have whooped the kids ass, pulled out his wallet and try to find where his parents lived, but being in the military I do not need to get in any trouble.

all this happend in a good neighbor, in the middle of the day. just stay alert and watchout for kids like this, its an obvious scam, I told him, just admit to broke it and we will move on from it, but he wouldent andthen to punch me in the face ad trying to grab the paperwork it is obvious it was shdy.
