Members of Cleveland’s Mt. Pleasant neighborhood are taking matters into their own hands and announced an auxiliary police station on Thursday.

Those with the group, the Mt. Pleasant Concerned Citizens, said it’s all part of their fight against the recent rash of crime in their community.

“We need each other in order to make this neighborhood a better place to stay,” Beverly Moore said.

The rash of crime started in late March with the bodies of 20-year-old Jasmine Trotter and 45-year-old Christine Malone being discovered.  Just last week, the remains of 21-year-old Ashley Leszyeski were found. All three women’s bodies were found in different areas of East 93rd Street.

Several attacks have been reported as well, including just this past Monday, where a woman reported being forced into a backyard by two men. The attack happened near East 116th Street and Continental Avenue
