Marc Giauque, KSL NewsradioA creepy encounter with a stranger has some people in an apartment on edge and police looking for a suspect.

It happened at an apartment near 1300 East and 160 South. Police say a woman heard some noise outside her apartment door last night around 8:00. Salt Lake Police Detective Jared Wihongi says, "She looked at the peephole, and she saw what appeared to be a plumber or some kind of maintenance worker that she thought was wearing a uniform, a white shirt with a name tag, holding a tool box."

Wihongi says when the woman asked the man what he was doing, he replied, "Hello, Susan."

Wihongi says she told the guy she wasn't Susan, and she tried to close the door. The man then tried to force his way into the apartment. Police say the woman held the door, and the suspect fled when she told him she was on her cell phone with dispatchers.

Police have a vague description of the suspect.
