BALTIMORE ― A string of sex attacks has east Baltimore on edge, and as Mike Hellgren reports there’s now a new push to get the men responsible off the streets and behind bars.
Crime Stoppers is now offering a $2,000 reward, and the NAACP asking for volunteers to hand out flyers.
After rapes, sexual assaults and a murder, women in east Baltimore are scared. Police are asking them to stay inside after midnight.
“Just like the crime in Baltimore City, people get kind of numb from it. We’re saying, ‘no, we can’t get numb.’ We’re talking about our mothers, daughters, our sisters, our grandmothers, and they’re vulnerable,” said Marvin ‘Doc’ Cheatham, Baltimore City NAACP.
