“We just are very diligent about locking our doors now,” said Esther Curnutt, a board member of the Oak Park-Northwood Neighborhood Association. “We're on high alert.”
“I've lived here for 43 years, and this is the first time we've seen anything like this,” said William Harris, a neighbor of the victim. “I feel so sorry for that woman; I'm glad they caught the suspects.”
In addition to the $1,200, the men fled with a Dell laptop computer, two cordless phones, a watch and a bed sheet they used to carry the stolen goods, police said.

Records show one arrest on a marijuana possession charge for Evans.
As the men were leaving the crime scene, the victim heard Steadman tell Evans: “You in my town now,” the incident report says.
