Ralph Dixon has lived in the neighborhood for nearly 30 years. He said he has seen crime increase over the past few years. The spike in crime doesn't scare him. \"I'm not afraid. I've been around here for years and years and I know that wherever you are things like this are going to happen,\" said Dixon.
