A Brooklyn woman says she is worried about law enforcement officers knocking on her door at odd hours every few weeks, asking for people who don’t live at the Sheepshead Houses. 
On March 17, at around 5:44 a.m. officers knocked on the woman’s door to ask for someone named Marie and Josiah. The resident asked not to be identified.  
“They asking if I know her, if I know how they look, if I have information…I stated to them that this is my apartment. I'm the head of the household. I'm not subleasing from anyone and they don't live here,” the woman tells News 12. 
She says this is probably the eighth time since July that officers have come to her home at odd hours asking for the same two people. She says she and her family just moved to the Sheepshead Houses and believe those were the names of the previous residents. 
That’s when they say they started suspecting that they might be impersonators. News 12 confirmed with both NYCHA and the NYPD that the men in the video were indeed law enforcement. 
A police spokesman tells News 12, "The video depicts NYPD officers. As part of an ongoing investigation, they are seeking an individual wanted for a violent felony." 
The woman tells News 12 she just wants this to come to an end.
