We found out from police last night that a robbery was committed recently at a gas station market on Rosa Parks next to the mission. The suspects identified by the alleged victim were two women who live at the mission. One of those suspects allegedly pulled a knife on the victim.
Police also told us that they have reports that some women who live in the mission are hooking in the alley behind the mission.
It appears that the Union Rescue Mission needs to work harder at overseeing its campus and straining out criminal elements. It would not serve their ministry to set neighborhood attitudes against them.
