Unfortunately that description in this area isn't going to help.

Guard your belongings, Mountain View, for the highwayman known as the dreaded "Red Hood" hath struck! But seriously, folks, I'll bet he'll not be wearing that red hoody again, for pulling his next job.

I would suggest that area should have a Neighborhood Watch group, but I think that the fear of gang or otherwise criminal element reprisal, and the attendant fear of same, is much too high in that area, which is too bad, really.

It's even closer to the Senior Center and the Bumble Bee Health Food store. Did the red hoodie have "I (heart) Tofu"? Was he using a walker?

By the looks of that map, Gamel Way is a cul-de-sac.
