(ABC 6 NEWS) -- The Alden Police Chief is warning elderly women to be careful after reports of a man showing up at houses asking to come inside.

It has happened twice in five days. The first was Friday. A man knocked on a woman's door, and when she answered, he said a name and asked if that person was home. When the woman said no, the man told her he was cold and asked to come inside. He came back again less than an hour later. Police say a similar thing happened to another woman Tuesday night. Police also say he told one woman he gave good massages.

The women were not hurt in either case, but authorities do not believe the man is up to any good. He's described as white, mid 30's, clean-cut, and wearing a black jacket. If you have any information contact authorities. Police also say if the man shows up at your house do not let him in and call 911.
