The woman argued with the males before they finally left the home, police said.

Police are advising residents to always ask for identification before allowing anyone to their home.

“It’s OK to ask questions,” the department said. “If you cannot verify who they are, don’t let them in. If they refuse to leave, call the police department at 513-829-8201 and we will be happy to escort them from your property.”
