Bizarre incident near N. Toledo murder scene

NORTH TOLEDO (WTOL) - Ever since Francis Fox became the latest Toledo murder victim, nearby residents beefed up their own patrols.

"If I see something suspicious, I let the neighbors know, and let them keep an eye out. We just try to solve the problem," said concerned resident James Valentine.

Neighbor Kim Smith tells us, "I'll call the cops. I don't have a problem with that because I'm scared, you know. I'm not going to act like I'm not scared because I am."

After News 11's Joe Stoll interviewed Smith, they witnessed something involving a car that had them calling the police. A car backed into a pole and spun off down the road. It stopped near the corner where a woman died earlier this week.

They called 911, then captured video of a van following close behind the damaged car before it fled onto Manhattan. "It was scary," said Smith, "It was unexpected and scary."

Multiple calls were made to 911. After more than 30 minutes, police arrived. Police chief Mike Navarre says a number of factors play into how quickly a patrol car arrives and says he'll look into this incident.

"I was scared before this happened, so I'm even more concerned now," said Smith. With everything that's happened this north Toledo resident says, "Look out for your neighbor cause sometimes they may not be able to lookout for themselves."
