Last week, police were able to track down suspects believed to be involved in the uptick in violent crimes happening in the 5th precinct. Six individuals were interviewed and two were arrested.
Unfortunately, resident reports have come in that armed robberies were attempted in the area over the weekend. This means that at least some of the individuals perpetrating these crimes are still out there and operating.
Please be alert and cautious when arriving and leaving. Keep your personal belongings in zipped pockets or bags. If carrying a bag, wear it cross-body. Have your hands free, and your ears available to observe your surroundings. The police are also recommending to travel in company when possible. The more alert and aware you are, the less likely you are to be the victim of one of these attacks.
SWBA will keep you posted with updates as the investigations progress.
