DURHAM, N.C. — Recent crimes in a Durham neighborhood have residents on alert and taking action.
About 100 members of the Trinity Park Homeowner's Association met with Durham police on Sunday. Representatives from Partners Against Crime and the Durham Crisis Center also attended.
At least two people who live in the Trinity Park area have been sexually assaulted in the last couple of months. The most recent case happened two weeks ago. Police are still looking for suspects.
Since January, more than two dozen car break-ins have also been reported in the area.
The group met to come up with a plan of action to prevent future crimes in the neighborhood. Possibilities include increasing lighting, petitioning the city and state governments to increase funding for more police officers, a community watch program and crime prevention walks.
