THEODORE, Ala. (WKRG) — It’s been an unnerving feeling for many of the people at the Green Meadow Apartments in Theodore.
Neighbors say it has typically been a safe area, but has recently seen an uptick in crime. For resident’s the breaking point came over the weekend when a woman was attacked.
The victim was walking through the complex when she was approached by three men. Police say it may have been a sexual assault attempt, but the woman was able to get away. She still suffered cuts and scrapes.
