The Melrose Action Neighborhood Watch reported this weekend that a possible 9th and 10th robbery occurred in the neighborhood, but went unreported to police. For the past two weeks, eight reported robberies have happened around the Melrose shopping district.

"At least two persons, unrelated to each other, have said that they failed to report their particular incidents to the police, therefore the crimes have gone unreported," the group's website states. "It is not clear what motivated them to keep silent and not come forward."

Meanwhile, a neighborhood meeting has been set for this Wednesday evening so residents and police can talk about the recent crimes, among other related issues.
