DALLAS - Hearing about a woman being carjacked in the garage of her apartment is enough to give anyone the heebee-jeebees.

People who live and work in downtown Dallas were so worried they met Monday night at The Woolworth on Main St. to talk about what to do.

“We had a recent robbery that was very unfortunate and we`ve got some people that are feeling a little unsafe, and that is very valid,” said Shalisa Perry, VP of marketing for Downtown Dallas, Inc.

Downtown Dallas, Inc. is organized the meeting. It comes a few days after a Davis Building resident was carjacked.

Davis Building management didn't want to talk to us on camera, but said they would be at the meeting -- along with three Dallas PD officers.

“We're going to talk about how property managers can keep their property safe, how you can keep your car safe, really just common sense stuff,” said Perry.

Crimes like these can freak you out, but it's important to keep things in perspective. Downtown Dallas is much safer now than in the past.

“We’ve had a dramatic drop in crime over the past 10 years,” Perry said. “But it’s still not safe enough for all of us; we want it to be a lot safer.”
