Let's match my anecdote with yours.

Some kids pounded on my front door in the middle of the night, I reported it in case it was an escalating pattern of behaviour, or one of a series of events.

I specifically said: "No need to follow this up, unless you need more information from me."

Two days later I received a call asking if I needed anyone to come visit me to look at home security, or if I needed any kind of victim of crime support.
We would be better, and braver, to engage in enquiry, rather than indulge in the idle fancy, that we already know -- Plato.
