Incident: I had to walk home from my job at the airport (Sky Harbor) late one night because I missed the bus. I was walking down Central Avenue past where there's a a big building in the process of being torn down. The building is about 6 or 7 stories high and one side is missing. You can't really access it unless you climb a barbed wire fence. So anyway, I was walking past it and I heard somebody say "Hmmm" and then let out a slight chuckle. I turned toward the building but it was dark and I couldn't see anything. I thought I saw a shadow move back further into the darkness, but I'm not sure. I kept walking, a little paranoid now, and I got about a mile down the road when across the street in a parking lot of a mall called "Park Central" I saw this really old-looking man just standing there staring at me like he knew me. I say old because he looked a little hunched over and he was missing all hair. He stared at me until I turned the corner, but strangely enough right before I walked up to my driveway I had an uneasy feeling and I turned around and the old man was behind me, but far back, not like he was chasing me. It was weird, I can't explain it. Anybody have any clues as to what he was, or maybe what he wanted? He didn't seem violent, just very interested in me, and I'm guessing he was the one who chuckled through the darkness of the building.
Comments from Dr. Pecos: If this report came into the FVZA office I would want to know more details about the man's appearance. Also, how far is it from the mall to your house? Without corroborating evidence, there's not enough here to conduct an investigation. Generally, if you think you are being followed, go toward well-lit areas with lots of people around. And if you miss the bus again, try to get a ride or even a taxi.
