DETROIT (WJBK) -

Locking arms in a west side neighborhood, the Detroit 300 praised, then patrolled.  They marched to the alley in the area off Pacific near Tireman where a 13-year-old girl was recently raped on her way to school between 7:00 and 8:00 in the morning.  Police say the girl was pulled into the bushes.

Detroit 300 went door-to-door showing the police composite picture of the suspect.

During their patrol, the 300 asked Fox 2 to listen in on some information they believe is new.  A woman told the group of another rape to a teenager.  The woman supplying the information asked us not to disclose her identity.

"Another 13-year-old, she was around 13, 14, she was raped Sunday morning on the Pacific bridge, early in the morning.  He jumped from the side of the bridge with a pistol and pulled
her back down and raped her and then let her go."

"We just learn that there may have been a rape just on Sunday of another teenage girl that may not have been reported," said Angelo Henderson with the Detroit 300.  "So we learn this kind of information when we're out talking to people. They share.  And so that's what we're trying to do, to be the bridge when it comes to information."

We asked the Detroit 300 what would they do if they had somebody who pointed out the rapist?  They said they would call their contact with Detroit Police.

Meanwhile, if you have any information, you are asked to call Detroit Police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

    Heavily armed police officers descended on a home in Long Beach, Long Island, Tuesday afternoon thinking they might find a grisly murder scene. Instead they found a terrified woman who had no clue what they were talking about and her teenaged son playing video games. "We received a phone call from a gentleman who stated he had just shot his mother and his brother," Long Beach Police Commissioner Michael Tangney said. "Unfortunately, this is a terrible national problem for law enforcement."

    An NYPD plan intended to better connect with the community seems to have backfired a bit. The police department asked its twitter followers to share pictures of themselves with New York City police officers using the hashtag "myNYPD." Some did share nice pictures, but others not so much.Some of the first pictures posted showed regular citizens standing with very friendly looking police officers.
