Crime map update

We have a few crime bits here:

  • I noticed while updating the crime map page that there was an attempted rape by a stranger on the 4600 block of Large Street on 11/21 at 10:22 PM.
  • From our friends at the West Frankford Town Watch: 15 year-old female reports while riding the Market-Frankford train to school, an unknown black male engaged her in conversation and then exposed himself to her. Offender; b/m, 40’s, dark complexion, 6’ tall, thin build, wearing thick glasses, a brown hat and sweatshirt, black leather jacket and tan work boots.
  • We have updated the crime map page to include the period from 11/10 to 11/23/2008
  • There has been a significant increase in burglary in Frankford.  It may be a normal fluctuation that will return to normal but the most recent report shows a 70% increase.  Might be time to get one of those alarm systems if you don’t already have one.  Keep these vermin our of your home.
