“When I came home, the police were out here,” said Brown.
“I think it’s sad that people are bringing that traffic here and we don’t need that because it’s a mature community — elderly neighborhood,” she added.
Other neighbors are also concerned.
“Social media is a good thing, used properly is a good thing,” said neighbor Calvin Betts. “Anything used improperly is a bad thing.”
So far no one has been arrested. It doesn’t appear the teen was hurt in the home invasion.
