Dallas police met with more than 100 people Monday to calm fears after a violent crime spree last week near Marsh and Forest lanes.

Brazen burglars went on a rampage in Dallas' Northhaven neighborhood early Friday, breaking into homes and terrorizing the people who live there.

"It's very concerning when front doors are being kicked in," resident Suzanne Formigue said.

"That's the main concern," Deputy Chief Malik Aziz said. "People don't feel safe."

The burglars forced their way into two homes and tried kicking their way into at least four others during a four-hour span Friday morning.

"There's no real discernible pattern," Aziz said. "It looked to be a random type of act."

Dallas police have added decoy cars and beefed up patrols in the neighborhood in addition to Monday's crime watch meeting at the Northwest substation.

"I don't think it's going to put a stop to it," resident Diane Gentile said. "It might put a glitch in it, but I think this is the way it is."
