By BBN Staff: San Pedro residents are breathing a sigh of relief due to effective policing in their municipality.
At the end of last month several residents had reported on Facebook that they were attacked by a gang of teenagers.
The attacks mostly occurred at night and were directed towards persons driving golf carts.
A woman and her two children were attacked in one of the incidents.
However, no official report was ever made to police.
The San Pedro Sun had broken the story and contacted the Police Department who immediately ramped up operations in town.
Following an interview with police, the Sun reported that police indicated that there has been no further attacks since increased police activity.
However, police will continue to maintain their presence to deter criminal elements.
