Faced with assaults and vandalism a neighborhood worries about its safety.
Those who live at a south Lansing apartment complex have been dealing with a rash of crimes against them for months now and Thursday night the city council came together to address the issue.
The apartments are the Summer Place Townhomes on South Waverly road in Lansing.
Many of the people who live there are refugees from other countries and some suggest that could be the reason they're being targeted.
Looking out the window of his south side shop, Alfonso Salas tells us he's worried about his neighbors.
Salas: "They have been coming to my business and complaining about what's happening to them."
He says what's happening is vandalism, theft and assault.
Salas: "I seen an older 70 year old man that was punched in the face for no reason."
Salas says the community is worried and fearful of what is yet to come.
Salas: "They don't feel comfortable letting their kids play in the yard after school like they used to."
At the request of those who live at Summer Place, the Lansing City Council called a meeting tonight but the personal stories were missing since only a few people showed up.
A'Lynne Robinson, Third Ward Council member: "I think there's a lot of confusion at this point."
Council members say that may be because there was a residents' meeting about the crimes at Summer Place yesterday.
Brian Jeffries, City Council President: "We come here tonight ready to put together an action plan to really start aggressively dealing with these issues and finding out its basically a no show."
But the council and salas still hope to stop the crime.
Jeffries: "Its clear that there's a group within this area that knows that this group is vulnerable and they're taking advantage of it."
Salas: "These people don't deserve to live in fear, they don't deserve their children to be incarcerated in their own homes."
But as all the players regroup to figure out when they can come together to talk, Salas wonders what will happen.
Salas: "These people shouldn't have to worry about what's going to happen tonight that one of them stays up, they take turns staying up."
And he says its likely many are waiting up tonight, hopeful their families will be safe.
We went to the Summer Place office today and tried to speak with management but they refused to comment.
