NEWFANE — An Ellicott Road woman looked out onto her back porch to find a shirtless man around 3:15 a.m., according to a report filed with the Niagara County Sheriff's Office.

The woman told patrol that she was sleeping on the couch in the living room of her residence when she heard a noise on the back porch. The dog began to bark, which caused her to be concerned. She then went into her kitchen and observed through the window an unknown male standing on the enclosed back porch.

The man was described as white, approximately five-feet, 10-inches tall, with a thin build, shaved blonde hair, wearing black mesh shorts, white shoes with no socks, and no shirt.

She said once she observed the unknown male, she grabbed a large knife, at which point, the male exited the porch and proceeded on foot towards the front of the residence to Ellicott Road. She said there was no communication between her or the male.

No items were missing from the residence, according to the report. Patrol observed no signs of forced entry. Patrol checked around the residence for any signs of foot markings in the wet grass with negative results.

The woman was reminded to keep all doors of the residence secured and told that patrol would continue periodic checks throughout the remainder of the night.

The Lockport Rampage will take on the Nickel City Kings at 7 p.m. at Outwater Park for the Western Conference championship of the Northeastern Football Alliance.

The Rampage got to this position by beating the Buffalo Gladiators 8-2 a week ago in what may be the team's hardest-fought win of the season. They are the first Lockport semi-pro football team to win a post-season contest since the Lockport Invaders of the 1990s.

Their opponent tonight — the Kings — offered them their other most difficult game of the year, a game the Rampage won 6-0 on June 14.

"The fans willed us to victory last week and hopefully we can have that attendance plus more. We appreciate every Rampage fan out there," the team said Friday via its Facebook page.

The Rampage go into tonight's game undefeated and hoping to keep that streak alive to make it into the NFA Championship Game.

For their part, the Nickel City Kings won the right to play in the conference championship by beating the Southern Tier Diesel.
