A spike in crime has a typically safe Minneapolis neighborhood on high alert. 

On Monday night, residents of the Marcy-Holmes neighborhood gathered to discuss possible solutions to the incidents.

The incidents brought out uneasy residents to discuss their concerns. 

"Being a little scared to go out to your car is not a great feeling and is something you shouldn't have to deal with," Marcy-Holmes resident Joan Patterson said. 

 The inspector for the Minneapolis Police Department 2nd Precinct reassured residents the department is taking action, specifically at one apartment building that has seen a high number of calls for police.
