One’s from Morgan Junction, the other from Fairmount Springs – read on:
First, WSB Forums member HunterG was walking to her car on 42nd SW behind West Seattle Thriftway about this time last night when she “saw an individual with a flashlight pacing back and forth, flashing his light upon the mailboxes of a couple Condo buildings and a few houses. I thought this individual might have been lost or was looking for an apartment number, so from across the street I asked if they needed help finding an address, they must not have heard or seen me the first time so I shouted out the question again and walked under a street lamp. The person (I couldn’t tell if they were male or female – it was dark on the opposite side of the road) turned their body toward me and paused, so I knew they heard that time – but they did not answer and instead began walking away toward the bus stop on Morgan St. looking back a few times to see if I was following. The individual was about 5’5” – 5’7” and was wearing a fluorescent safety vest with reflectors, jeans and a beanie-like hat.”
Second, barely a mile away, the Fairmount Springs neighborhood mailing list wanted to forward an alert from a neighbor who saw two men walking along a long stretch of road, peering into car windows, at midmorning on Monday. The neighbor’s spouse “looked out our window and saw (the) two heading north on the sidewalk but slowing down and looking in our car windows. After calling me, she saw them repeat the same procedure all the way to Findlay, then turn around and return south on the same(east) side of 40th (no cars were on the west side of the street).” They were last seen heading west on Raymond from Fauntleroy.

A photo of the two was enclosed; we haven’t had luck blurring their faces so we’ve cropped it below the chins – one of the jackets is fairly distinctive, so you might remember if you’ve seen them:
Both had dark complexions and were wearing black or dark blue knit caps.
