(Memphis) Amber Bosnam and her husband Winna are changing their routine when it comes to walking the dog or taking out the trash.

“She comes out in the morning before I go to work, and comes out at night to take this guy for a walk,” said Winna.

One Saturday afternoon, a woman on nearby Allison Avenue took out the trash.

A man grabbed her, shoved her back inside her home, and forced her to have sex.

Gene Bryson has been worried about his family ever since.

He said this happened in the middle of the ice storm a few weeks ago.

Many neighbors saw the man just lurking around.

“He was on a bicycle, white male, had a blue goose-down jacket on,” said Bryson.

Police have stepped up patrols in the High Point Terrace neighborhood and are asking women to be alert and on guard when they’re alone, night or day.

This man struck at 4:30 in the afternoon on December 7th.
