A man reported at 3:39 p.m. May 25 that he received a menacing anonymous letter in the mail that featured typed words and photocopied pictures and referenced a yard sign on the 6200 block of Linworth Road, according to the Worthington Division of Police.

Authorities are aware of similar letters received by community members, the police report said.
