Another of our neighbours, four doors down, was threatened and robbed during a middle-of-the-night burglary by a gang of six or more armed men.
Of all the numerous home invasions around us - too many to count now - not one gang has been apprehended that I have heard of. There is at least one home invasion a month within a fifteen minute stroll of our house. No one has yet been physically hurt or killed, but we all know it is just a matter of time. Our house is a fortress, and I hate living like this.
Rant over, back to writing. And proof reading.
UPDATE: Just heard that the neighbour mentioned above was actually robbed two nights running; apparently they weren't satisfied the first time around and came back the next night with more men. The scum of the earth, getting their kicks by scaring people to death.
