I think everyone in this neighborhood should have been told 2 weeks ago, a man came up to a couples door and ran when the light came on. Yes, the police were notified. There is a guy running around at night, and we need to let this information out!!!! We asked for more patrol but have not seen any. Please call the police if you see anyone out walking at night.

"Staff" should have watched some TV reports of this incident. According to them the lady was not alone on the porch. They reported she and another person were both robbed before she was assaulted.
