BATON ROUGE- People are still on edge, a week after attacks in neighborhoods near the city's center began.

Since last Sunday, four women have been the victims of home invasions and sexual assaults.

Monday evening, people who lived in the communities where an attacker- or attackers- have hit said they remain vigilant and concerned.

"I"m concerned that it is happening and there has not been any break or lead in the case," said Jason Bordelon.

"It's a frightening thing," said Marilyn O'Brien who said crime is unusual in her subdivision.

Police have not said there is officially any connection to the four attacks but each time victims report similar descriptions: a man in dark clothes wearing a ski mask. He gets inside homes where women are alone through unsecured doors and windows.

Police have increased patrols in the areas where women have reported the attacks: Glen Oaks, Webb Park, Tara, and Sherwood Forest.
