MAYFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - Police in Mayfield Heights investigated several complaints of two suspicious men knocking on doors in neighborhoods.

The latest incident happened around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 25 on Ashcroft Drive in Mayfield Heights.

A resident called the police after seeing the two men acting questionably.

One of the men reportedly checked the door handle of a home, but the door was locked and he could not get inside.

When an Ashcroft Drive resident spoke to one of the men via their Ring Doorbell, the man said he was soliciting work for his painting company. When the resident said they were not interested, the man then offered to shovel the driveway.

Police said solicitors are required to obtain a permit prior to soliciting door-to-door in Mayfield Heights.
