Homeowner Ali Porath posted on Facebook that the situation spooked her, alongside a video of the incident. In the post, she said that she was in the process of unloading the car after she and her child got home when a man appeared in the driveway and approached the front door. Nest doorbell video showed the man trying to open the door before knocking.
While the video ends with the man still at the door, Porath said in her post that the man stayed there for more than two minutes, "knocking, standing there, then called someone before walking away."
According to the LASD, the man seen in the video came to the sheriff's station and explained that he had a friend that lived in the area and went to the wrong house. His story checked out, according to the LASD.
