Pinch , Kanawha County , West Virginia
People in Pinch are having a tough time finding peace of mind after two violent incidents in their community.
It’s usually a quiet neighborhood, but after Frank Mace was injured during a home invasion attempt and, just two streets over, a 74-year old woman was beaten unconscious in her home, people living in Pinch are doing everything they can to protect themselves.
The neighborhood watch group in this area is has urged everyone to be on guard, because the people doing this are still on the loose.
Kanawha County deputies responded to a home invasion on Miller Drive Thursday, where they found an elderly woman unconscious.
Now, some evidence may link the incident to an earlier attempted invasion in the same neighborhood.
Police are still investigating the case.
The neighborhood watch group has offered simple advice for everyone to follow.
“Lock your doors. That’s something we should be doing anyway, even if this hadn't happened,” said Angela Brown, of the Pinch Neighborhood Watch. “Keep a porch light one. Make sure your porch lights are working. Check on a neighbor that isn't able to get out. Allow the police to do their job, but be vigilant and be protectful of your family.”
