— A historic neighborhood in Fayetteville is on guard after at least three muggings since March.

One attack happened along Hillcrest Avenue in the Haymount area late last month when, the victim said, two men jumped him from behind and hit him on the head.

Another resident said an attacker hit him with something and broke his leg.

Police have charged one man with that assault but have made no other arrests.

They have stepped up patrols in the area.
