Woodlands residents beware. This via email and confirmed by the Woodlands Community Association:
My father just called me because I often walk to PC's shopping center to eat at Brooklyn Bagel.
A coworker of his just went there to run into Sear's around 1pm. As she left her car and was in the lot, 2 black males approached her with a gun, told her to get in their car....she hit her 'panic' button on her keychain and they bolted.
A few weeks ago, a mother who ran in to get her toddler at preschool nearly had her car carjacked with her infant in it.
The local newspaper, The Villager, rarely covers these events. They do get reported through an email neighborhood watch group. At least once every two weeks I'm receiving news of some violent attempt on women with children.
Since the police can't be everywhere, citizens need to be informed. It's no use pretending that this isn't happening. They should be widely publicized, along with descriptions of the would-be criminals, so people can be aware and protect themselves.
Here's how you can help:
In the future, and after you have contacted law enforcement, your welcome to enter this type of information into our resident “Service Request System” at the associations website, www.thewoodlandsassociationsOr, you can get a concealed handgun permit and arm yourself.
.org, and clicking on, make a request, request a service, criminal activity. This will allow us to follow-up on the activity through our reporting system.
UPDATE: Thank you Kman for the link to The Woodlands Monitor. I'm going to add it to the blog roll. All sorts of great local info.
