I lived in the Shaw area about a year ago and there were some kids in the alley behind my house. (near New Jersey and Q) They were throwing bottles and rocks up onto our 2nd floor deck and when I came outside with my dogs, they started yelling profanities at me. When they saw my 2 massive dogs, they got spooked and ran away – but before they disappeared, one of the kids pulled out a knife and told me he would use it on the dogs if I let them out.
My apartment also got broken into twice at this location – even with ADT security in place. The police were incredibly slow to respond and never had any leads. We also had our car damaged and broken into in our parking spot. Between the robberies and this other incident, we decided to move instead of installing bars on all of our doors and windows.
