Fear in the Heights

The Heights neighborhood e-mail group provides a regular barometer on criminal activities and neighborhood feelings about same. Yesterday, it provided an account of shots fired in a garage burglary attempt. THOUGHT EVERYONE IN THE HEIGHTS MIGHT LIKE TO KNOW THAT LAST NIGHT AT ABOUT TWO AM OUR ALARM WENT OFF IN OUR BEDROOM.WE WERE FAST ASLEEP.SO WHEN IT WENT OFF I JUMPED OUT OF BED AND GRABBED MY WEAPON AND WENT TO THE BACK BEDROOM AND LOOKED OUT THE WINDOW AND SAW A MAN TRYING TO TO GET INTO THE GARAGE.THE SAME GARAGE THAT THEY HAD STOLEN THE BEER,WINE,FLASHLIGHT AND CORDLESS DRILL FROM, . THEY HAD ALREADY GOTTEN INTO THE SMALL REFRIGERATOR ON THE COURTYARD,AND HAD FILLED UP A BACK PACK WITH ALL THE BEER. WHEN I OPENED THE BACK DOOR HE STARTED TOWARD ME AND I FIRED A ROUND OVER HIS HEAD.THE OTHER PERSON RAN OUT THE GATE DROPPING BEER ON COURTYARD AND ON THE NEIGHBORS YARD NEXT DOOR. I MADE THE OTHER ONE DROP TO THE GROUND AND STAY THERE TILL THE POLICE GOT HERE .I AM CONVINCED THAT IF I HAD NOT HAD A WEAPON,THEY WOULD HAVE HURT XXXX OR ME . I'M STILL NOT SO SURE,THAT THEY MIGHT BE THE ONES GOING THROUGH THE NEIGHBORHOOD BREAKING IN,OR POSSIBLY EVEN THE ONES THAT HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH MISS PRESLEY.
I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO THANK THE LITTLE ROCK POLICE DEPARTMENT FOR THEIR QUICK RESPONSE,AND ESPECIALLY DETECTIVE STEVE WOODALL. HE WAS SO HELPFUL,UNDERSTANDING AND PROFESSIONAL,QUITE AN ASSET TO THE LITTLE ROCK POLICE DEPARTMENT. MY HAT IS OFF TO HIM! ALSO,ONE OF THE POLICE OFFICERS HAD A RUN IN WITH THIS SAME MAN LAST YEAR,AND WHEN THEYFOUGHT, THE OFFICER WAS HURT,SO THEY WERE VERY HAPPY TO CATCH HIM. I JUST HOPE THIS WILL BRING AN END TO SOME OF THE THINGS GOING ON IN THE HEIGHTS.I AM VERY CONCERNED FOR THE SINGLE WOMEN IN THIS NEIGHBORHOOD,BUT THIS THIEF IS IN JAIL,BUT I WAS TOLD THAT HE MIGHT GET OUT BECAUSE THERE ISN'T ENOUGH JAIL SPACE.HOW SAD, AND WHAT A MESSAGE TO SEND TO THE TO THE CRIMINALS OUT ON THE STREET.THEY MUST LAUGH,KNOWING THERE'S NO CONSEQUENCE FOR THERE CRIMES !
