CITY COUNCIL MEMBER WANDA ADAMS RESPONDS TO YOUNG GIRL WHO WAS ALLEGEDLY ATTACKED IN HOUSTON!

As a Council Member, we are most challenged with the public safety of the community and ensuring that we can provide a safe passage of travel for students, residents, and the elderly.

In response to the young teenager who was assaulted in an abandoned home, Council Member Adams, City of Houston representatives, and Community Leader, Pastor Terry K. Anderson, will walk Noah Street and Mainer Street to assess the various dangerous buildings that pose a threat for criminal activity, including the abandoned home where the attack is suspected to have taken place.

As we walk to shed light on homes that are in need of boarding or demolition, we will continue to strive to hold property owners accountable for clearing violations so that our neighborhoods are safe for the residents.

We are asking that you encourage your viewers to contact the Houston Police Department at (713) 884-3131 if they have any information pertaining to this case.
