In the past week, seven people have been robbed at gunpoint by either one person or a group of three around the Melrose corridor. The LA Times delved into the story and made this map, which is helpful for those who live, work or play in the area to be aware and stay safe. If you're invested in this neighborhood, there's a neighborhood watch with an e-mail list to keep informed. As cheesy as it sounds, when it comes to stopping crime in your neighborhood (as proven earlier today), knowledge is power.
