We are patrolling that area and have made eight arrest in the Rhode
Island Ave. corridor in the last 90 days for robbery. We will continue
to focus on this area and begin plain clothes operation to combat a
growing problem with the juveniles committing robberies in the area.
Thank you for the information and please continue to keep me informed of
things occurring in that area!!!

Hello - I have also been attacked on the ramp leading down to Brentwood
Road off the Home Depot parking lot. I was attacked by several young
teens. This was almost a year ago when it happened. That area is not
well lit - is there anyway to get Home Depot to install cameras or
lighting there? I really feel like Home Depot or the shopping center
needs to take some responsibility for that area.
I too live close to 13th and Downing (actually on 13th and Bryant) - I
can confirm that there is drug activity in the area, especially by
Downing and Adams and 13th and Downing. If it takes getting additional
residents to do something about these problems, please let us know so we
can do something proactively.

I am new to this group and unfortunately, my first posting is on
negative note. My husband was approached today by four teenage
who attempted to steal his wallet while he was walking home from
by the Rhode Island Home Depot along the ramp that leads down to
Brentwood Avenue. This occurred at 5 pm today. Fortunately, he
unhurt and kept his possessions. He didn't make a report, is it
late? Will the police actually increase patrols if he makes one
Also, this area needs more patrols for another sad reason. The
of 13th and Downing in NE is ridden with drug dealers at night.
have to pass this corner on my way home. My car has been
several times and it is just horrifying to know that such
goes on regularly. Without fail, every evening, drug pushers
over that block.
As a new mother and homeowner in the area, I am terrified and at
end of my rope. Help!
