Four incidents in which residents were attacked have occurred since Thursday night.
Neuley Tyson of Frydenjoj #52-1 was shot at when he threw a shirt at a gunman who approached him outside his home at 11:30 p.m. Thursday. The assailant ran away after shooting at Tyson. The bullet grazed Tyson's hip, according to a release from acting territorial Police Chief Jose Garcia.
Minutes later in Lindbergh Bay, Charles Andre said three men broke into his home and assaulted him and his wife while demanding money. When Andre said he only had a bag full of pennies, the three men took the bag and left the house.
Andre and his wife were treated at Roy L. Schneider Hospital for head and facial injuries.
On Friday a Mandahl resident, Mary Christi, was followed by an unidentified vehicle from the Shipwreck Bar in Havensight. Christi told police she thought she had lost the vehicle, but when she got out of her car in her driveway, she was struck on the head. The assailant took Christi's backpack and left, apparently in a vehicle, the release said.
Ian Cleary of Estate Peterborg reported that a red jeep forced him off the road at 4:30 a.m. Friday in Estate Elizabeth. Cleary told police that when he got out of his car, he was pistol whipped and robbed of $125. The attacker then fled the area.
