Prichard Neighborhood Uneasy After Home Invasion

Prichard Neighborhood Uneasy After Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:
PRICHARD, Ala -

Superior Drive in Prichard used to be quiet and friendly according to those who live there.

"All the neighbors, you know were good and stuck together and helped each other," says Betty Downey.

But, a few nights ago, a little girl was violated when a man climbed into her house through a window.

Neighbors say they're scared to sleep in their own homes now, especially those who have children.

"It's a lot to take in at times because, I'm young, but I have a daughter myself and I couldn't imagine anything like that ever happening," says neighbor Chris Williams.

Friday, a police car was patrolling the area, but neighbors say that's not enough.

"When you think about authorities and them solving the problem, they'll tell you they'll try to solve the problem or look for something. But, most of the people around here don't even worry about calling the police," says Williams.

For now, neighbors are on alert, sleeping with windows shut so they don't become the next victim.
