Always check the door before you answer. Especially late at night.

It was 10 o'clock at night what are we thinking opening up our doors???Unless we look out the window we should not be opening the door to anyone out there.So many break ins, burglaries are happening in our area people should be extra cautious and more aware of what "could" happen in these times. The days of being able to leave your doors unlocked or even walking through our towns safely are sadly I believe long gone.I hope this woman that was attacked is doing ok.
