Police urge caution after Bay View assaults
MILWAUKEE - Police are telling Bay View residents to be more alert, and people in Bay View say they won't let fear take over their community.
A meeting for a community on edge was held at Bay View High School after four sexual assaults in the nighborhood since Febuary.
"It happened about 2 blocks from my house, next to our church," said Kathy Banech, who lives in Bay View.
Police say a man walks up to women late at night, tells them not to scream and then gropes them. A couple of women have screamed and he ran off.
"This neighborhood is pretty safe, I wouldn't have expected it here," said fellow resident Beck Kennedy. "No one will let me go home by myself and my boyfriend always makes sure he picks me up at work and stuff."
Police want you to get a good look at their sketch of the suspect and want you to be on alert.
If you know anything or have seen him, you are asked to call Milwaukee Police.
