CLEVELAND – People remain on edge after three women were found murdered and another brutally attacked along a stretch of East 93rd Street in southeast Cleveland.
“All within one mile of each other,” Cleveland City Council member Zack Reed said at a safety forum Tuesday evening.
Reed and other city leaders, along with police, ministers and community activists told a room full of concerned residents they need the public’s help to get the attackers off the street.
“If you don’t share the information, then our investigations stall sometimes,” Fourth District Police Commander Deon McCaulley said.
Jamella Hasan, 37, was found stabbed 15 times near East 93rd Street and Manor on December 17.
“The person that did this to her is still running the streets of our city,” Reed said.
Jasmine Trotter, 20, was found murdered in an abandoned home on East 93rd Street on March 24. She was raped and badly beaten.
A few days later Christine Malone, 45, was found beaten and strangled to death.
“Got into a car and then her body was thrown at 93rd and Bessemer,” Reed said pointing to a map of the attacks.
One woman, who we are not identifying, survived a brutal attack by a man on East 116th Street and Harvey on March 30 while she was walking to work.
“I felt somebody snatch me by my scarf and drag me backwards,” the victim told FOX 8 News last week.
As the man tried to drag her to an abandoned house, a car full of people drove up, yelled, and scared her attacker off, she said.
Community activists want the people who saved her to come forward with information.
