On Tuesday 23 September Luttrellstown Riverwood Bramley Residents Alert FB Page (a closed group – ask there for access), reported:
Just a warning to anyone in Carpenterstown, Luttrelstown area….short red haired man was cycling around the area checking out side entrances etc this evening..skinny junky head with blue jeans and whitish track suit top on..spread the word and if you spot anything suspicious just ring the Guards in Blanch..they are already aware of him
Another description of his behaviour:
Lads keep an eye out. There is a fella cycling around Riverwood looking at houses with no car in the drive. Seen at 3 houses near me. A neighbour arrived home and he was up the side of his house. Said he was looking for someone. About 5’9″, red hair, dark blue jacket, blue jeans. I think someone rang the Garda.
