|Alarming spike in armed break-ins; LANDLORDS – Please be sure your tenants know this!!|
There have been a very high number of home invasions, break-ins, and robberies since the beginning of the year. In MOST cases, the offenders gained entry through an unlocked window or unsecured door.
In many instances, the offenders are described as 2 or 3 Black Males, “skinny”, about 5’10”. One carries a gun. There have been descriptions of one having facial scruff. Often dressed in black or dark clothes with hoodies. Have worn skimasks on some occasions. Initially, people were reporting that they heard a knock at a door & if there was no response, the suspects barged in demanding money and electronics at gunpoint. Others have reported hearing knocks at bizarre hours of the night, but that the person knocking ran off when they heard a dog. On another occasion, someone cut the screen out of a porch window, but were unable to pry the window up since it was latched. Some victims have reported being assaulted, one assault was sexual. These incidents seem to be concentrated from Arcadia down to at 17th, from the railroad tracks west to Neil Ave area. Times have ranged from evening to 2 am or so.
What do we mean by “sketchy”?
