BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -
Councilman John Delgado and St. Aloysius Parish will be hosting a meeting Tuesday to address the increased number of burglaries and crime in the Southdowns area.
The meeting is September 17, 2013 at 6 p.m. in the St. Aloysius Church Parish Hall at 2025 Stuart Ave. in Baton Rouge.
"We've called a meeting of all the local civic associations in the Southdowns area along with the police department, the chief, the detectives in charge of burglary, and other members of the department," Delgado tells 9News. "Getting the community together with the crime that has been going on in the Southdowns area and see what steps we can take to address it."
Two different incidents sparked the meeting according to Delgado. "There have been two high profile incidents in the Southdowns area. The first was the young couple that was followed home by a vehicle it kind of followed them around for a while," says Delgado. "The other was a jogger on East Lakeshore who was robbed. She lost her cell phone and had to go to the hospital. We need to be diligent and watch out for each other."
