HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

People in a Henderson neighborhood are on edge after they say a "creepy guy" went door-to-door in their neighborhood, only targeting houses with children. 

Parents say the man told their family he used to live at their house 20-25 years ago and that he wanted to visit his dead dog buried in the backyard so he can take pictures and "pray." 

The only problem is that he reportedly used the same line at multiple houses in the area of Horizon and College drives, which freaked out a lot parents. 

They said either he has a lot of dead dogs in people's backyards, or something is fishy. 

One mom said she could tell there was something "off" about the man as soon as she met him.

"He was so creepy," said the mother, who wanted to remain anonymous. "I shook his hand. He introduced himself as Gordon."

"Gordon" is described as a large man in his 30s, approximately 6'2" tall and 250 pounds. He was wearing a red shirt and a red backwards baseball hat. The mother said he was adamant about coming inside. 

Police responded to the area on Sunday but couldn't find him. 

The mom said she saw "Gordon" driving a dark blue sedan and that her neighbors have seen a car matching that description lurking in the area before. 

"Very, very coincidental... It almost feels like he knew which houses already had children in it," she said. "If he's taking pictures, what's he going to take pictures of - the ground?"

The mother is urging anyone who has any information about this man to please call the Henderson Police Department. 

"It's scary when it comes to your children," she said, "because it's the most important thing in your life."
