Note: Watchful neighbors are the best tool against crime.
One resident of the Oxford Triangle reported the following
Friday morning at about 6:30am, I got a call from my neighbors saying someone had opened the gate on the side of my house and was going into my backyard. By the time I got out there, the neighbor had already confronted the guy, and he was in the street with his bicycle. According to the trespasser, he was simply looking for a safe place to park his bike while he walked someplace else for breakfast. Of course, none of that made any sense. I didn’t call the police, as I didn’t think they would do anything. In retrospect, I regret not doing so.
