Tampa Police are asking for your help catching the man they say attacked a woman jogging in Hyde Park. Neighbors remain on edge.
"It could have been my wife, it could have been our friend, it could have been anybody," said Shawn Yuskaitis, a Hyde Park resident.
This comes just days after a Bern's Steakhouse valet was held up at gunpoint on the job just a few blocks away.
Josh, who was fearful to give his last name, tells ABC Action News the man took more than $200 in tips and his sense of security. 
"I froze instantly," Josh said. "It was just absolutely terrifying."
People who have lived in Hyde Park now say these attacks have made them feel exposed, even in the middle of the day.
"I thought you know what, if someone even approached me now, at four in the afternoon, maybe no one would even know," said Kari Adams.
Residents have also been reporting a series of car break-ins and break-in attempts.
"Hyde Park will not tolerate this," Yuskaitis said. "We will absolutely work together as a team to aid the police to respond quickly."
Now, people in the community are calling for further partnerships with Tampa Police, who are not taking any of these attacks lightly. 
Police said there has not been a reported uptick in incidents in Hyde Park, but they encourage anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers of Tampa Bay.
