The 8-year-old girl, who lives with her family in the 6000 block of Oakland, said no and shut the door.

A few minutes later, a third knock came from the door. the report states. A black male was now standing with the other man. The girl immediately shut the door and told her father and grandfather. After knocking a fourth time, the two men at the door noticed the men inside the home and walked to a brown SUV.

The men continued to knock, asking to come in, but the family refused to allow them to enter. When the men refused to leave, the grandfather yelled that they were going to call police.
