Due to a spike in criminal activity, the city instituted stepped up police patrols in late April in an area bounded by Philo Road on the east, Mumford Drive on the south, Cottage Grove Avenue on the west and Colorado Avenue on the north. The area includes a number of apartment buildings, including one at 2017 S. Philo Road that was the site of a Feb. 14 murder.
