Last Friday night around midnight, a man and woman that live with me were approached by four youths at the corner of T and Lincoln NE who attempted to rob them at gun point. When the woman screamed, she was hit in the face with a billy club and her husband was repeatedly pistol whipped, receiving a skull fracture. I have lived in this neighborhood for 8 years and I love it. It's been amazing to watch the transformation and revitalization, but this was a sad reminder that there are still plenty of people around who have so little regard for life that they would risk almost killing someone over the promise of a cell phone and a few dollars.
Not sure what else to say other than be vigilant and look out for your neighbors as much as you can.
