The local police got wind of the reports but couldn’t figure out who this gingerbread intruder was. Someone from the neighborhood did approach them, though. The gingerbread man’s explanation? They were looking for a friend’s house. But the weirdness didn’t stop there. Residents were left scratching their heads, wondering, “What was the goal? Just to see if we’re home? Or to enter the house?”
The whole thing made it to the news. WUSA9 reported that the gingerbread man tried to get into people’s homes, leaving families pretty puzzled. In one case, a family decided to stay inside, watching as the gingerbread stranger tried to open their front door. Another person, scared by the inflatable gingerbread man, said, “We kind of locked eyes, and the gingerbread man went on his way. So weird.”
The local police did say they got online reports about the gingerbread man, but they couldn’t figure out who they were dealing with. Even though the gingerbread person claimed to be searching for a friend’s house, residents wondered why the police didn’t just talk to them directly.
So, there you have it. Arlington residents had a holiday experience they’ll never forget.
