NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Some North Little Rock residents living along Pike Avenue would like to see more patrols in their neighborhood and others are considering moving. They say their biggest concerns are not for themselves, but for their kids.
Brandi Pilcher has seen a lot of crime in broad daylight.
"I've seen fights were people have gotten brutally beaten," says Pilcher.
Just last week, she says someone tried to break in her house. She feels the same as Tina Marbley who lives one block away from her.
"They said I have to put in a request to move. I don't feel safe," says Marbley. "Everybody's kids were out here every time they were shot."
Marbley lives in the same apartment complex where a North Little Rock police officer shot a man Sunday. The man is a suspect in a beating and allegedly was going after an officer, who initially thought the man's cell phone was a gun.
