Yesterday, a Witness Expert in Tennessee acted quickly to help prevent an assault or worse upon a Montgomery, Alabama resident and her nine year old daughter. Stratejic’s Deana Stiltner was having an initial interview conversation with a perspective witness when the woman stated that an unidentified man was ordering her to open her front door and allow him entry into her house.
The man was overheard by Stiltner banging loudly on the door and shouting “You better show me some respect and open your door!” The man later quickly opened his jacket to reveal a badge and handgun, but refused to otherwise identify himself. Stiltner, a former Federal Agent, advised the woman that the man did not sound like a law enforcement officer to her, obtained the woman’s residence address and then contacted the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office who dispatched deputies to the scene. Stiltner remained on the telephone with the startled mother until their arrival, during which time the unidentified man fled the area. The responding deputies reported that their agency had no record of any of their officers present at the woman’s residence prior to their arrival, and took a report of the incident.
