Attack at the Park at Moss Creek

An armed robbery and rape occurred at the Park at Moss Creek Apartments last night. Nextdoor posts provided details of the crime. JPD sources confirmed the crime took place. The victims were three women and one man although only one woman was raped. The suspect is a 6'2" black male.

Just awful.

I lived about a mile from there in the Heatherwood area. These stories are why we left to Madison county. It wasn't worth my family's safety to reduce my commute by 5-10 minutes.

Save your time looking for a nice apartment to rent in Madison. We don't 'low nunna that up in here. Ridgeland is the apartment capitol of central Mississippi. And then there's Jackson.

But, back to the scene of the crime...not sure how the apartment management team can be held responsible when somebody follows a group of women into their unit. He probably lives in the next building over.

9:23; The problem has nothing to do with Madison County. It's a way of life in apartment complexes nowadays. A large percentage of the apartment renting crowd belong to the 'take what you want' mentality.

The problem is not GEOgraphic. It's DEMOgraphic.

first: let's hope the thugs are put down like animals by JPD. They don't deserve a trial after brutally raping a woman.

second: just because someone does not have a lot of money to rent an apartment does NOT mean they deserve to be raped because they live on 'that side of town'. living on a lower middle class income OR even welfare should not necessarily mean living in constant fear of rape or murder.

third: all that being said, it's true that living on 'that side of town' will put you in danger of being raped or murdered. MOVE! move to smaller towns with far less crime and affordable rents. Mississippi is full of them.

fourth: or another novel idea: actually keep criminals in prison for full terms. support social programs such as big brothers/big sisters that mentor the youth in positive lifestyles. not everyone will be an architect, but some people can put pride in working at a mini mart. as long as someone isn't a thug-we should be encouraging and just not whine about 'them' vs 'us'

Last month, there was some idiot on the "officer shot" thread talking about how safe and popular this apartment complex was.

Anonymous said...

This can't be. Just last night I saw on WLBT Lee Vance talking about how crime was down across the city.

The description of the assailant is curioulsy lacking an important detail. I'm amazed at the number of people who are more afraid of being thought a racist than they are of being raped, robbed, or murdered.

Real knight in shining armor that laid under a blanket while one of the women was raped. Turn in your man card douche bag

10:31, It is one thing to be the victim of a crime. If you describe the criminal you open yourself up to all of their friends, family, and race. It is sad when things have gotten that bad.

If someone start talking about a blue sun then I would take note of it. Otherwise, same old, same old.

Here are the usual suburbanites complaining about the problems they exacerbated by turning tail and running. They'll flee further at the slightest sniff of trouble. STFU and let those of us who care about our communities do our work.

What was the race of the victims? White people in that area might as well have a target on their backs.

1:01 seems shocked that most people would rather live in safety and with a higher quality of life as opposed to living in danger and going down with a sinking ship that can't be righted.

There's a review of these apartments on Google from three weeks ago that describes the exact same behavior for robbery (no rape). Seems like this isn't the first time this guy has struck. JPD needs to get on this.

JPD will be right on it. As soon as Vance wakes up.

No matter the topic, the Madison folks love to hate on Jackson. Hate to break it to ya, but Madison ain't nothing special. It's a pasture with cookie cutter houses. So get over yourself.

Anonymous said...

Vance, Yarber and Foote pressure officers to under classify, under report or not report crimes especially in precinct four. Most crimes that wind up getting officially reported are classified as property crimes rather than violent crimes.

Hate to break it to ya 3:55 but residential real estate data reveals the exodus out of Jackghanistan is gaining even more steam.

I've lived in Madison my entire life. I've never heard of anything like this. Madison might not be anything special, but that doesn't detract from the fact that Jackson is more dangerous than most third world countries. There's certainly nothing special about that dump.

The victims were white.

Anonymous said...

It's getting harder and harder to have any sympathy for the many victims of Jackson crime. There's no way these people didn't know that Jackson is not a safe place to live. Like too many others, they just put blinders on and refuse to believe that Jackson is as unsafe as it is. It's beginning to be a reap what you sow type of thing.

In the rare event that someone that cares about their family enough to live in a safe area, but is still a victim, then I have sympathy for them.

LORD have mercy on the Nextdoor control freaks who waste time getting worked up about information leaking outside of their little social network safe space than they are concerned about the victims of violent crime and arresting the thug responsible for rape.

Maybe we can get Senator John Horhn to weigh in and provide commentary.

Keep looking past the story Jackson AND Ridgeland AND Madison County [AND] Tate Reeves for blessing Horhn's gerrymander.

Because it is real and some of y'all in MadCO keep voting for Senator Charlatan.

Potholes, water issues, crime, etc. All of this, and I seriously still would rather live in Jackson than any of the "suburbs" around here. Regardless of what the Jackson-haters say, I still enjoy living, working, and shopping in Jackson. I know that really gets under your skin.

Prayers for the victims of this heinous crime.

Will you want our sympathy 6:42 when your loved one is sexually violated? Will you tell your loved one to shake it off and go purchase some sourdough bread at Whole Foods?

6:42. Brandon, Clinton, Raymond, Flora, and Florence all have authentic old downtowns that are like minature Fondrens. None of those communities are perfect, but still have that old timey charm in places. fondren/Belhaven/woodland hills and such are just too close to stokesurg. who's going to rescue the children there? seems like no one .

Does anyone else think this story just doesn't add up? Made them lay under blankets? locking them in the bathroom? How do you lock someone in the bathroom from the outside? If he withdrew all his money wouldn't they have a photo of this guy by now? I'm not saying Jackson doesn't have thousands of thugs roaming all around but I'm just not sure if this passes the smell test.

I'm a JA parent. We don't live in Jackson but we wanted our kids to have a good education so we toured several schools and decided that JA was the best option for us. We love the school. I feel like my kids are getting a wonderful education.

But it's just getting awful around that whole area. I don't like being down there after dark. I don't want my kids driving by themselves anywhere near there after 5. I am really questioning our long term commitment to the school. It's sad because my kids love it. And other then the location, we love it too. But I just feel like it's only a matter of time before something happens to someone at the school.

@7:22 they do have a pic of the guy from the atm machine. He threatened to come back and kill them if their atm cards didn't work. They stayed under the blankets bc he said he would kill the one he raped if they moved. They were legit scared for their lives.

Tom Head, NextDoor, 3 hours ago: "The posting of this person's message beyond its intended audience puts him and his roommates at risk of further physical harm and serves no conceivable purpose for other neighborhoods, since no detailed description of the suspects is provided."

Youngest then Sophomore daughter robbed at gunpoint 35-40 minutes after a football game along with group other JA students a few doors down from Judge Waller's Sheffield house in 2008. All three gun toting suspects ran, then exited out the passway area east of the Judge's house to Wilhurst Street. Love, LOVE, JA, a really wonderful school and loving faculty but the campus location has become a major liability.

8:10, If we date back 8 years we can probably find a crime in just about every area of the metro. But let's list all the crimes in Jackson since 2008....not really

Kingfish said...

That is why a victim gave several interviews to the media and posted his experience on Facebook. Of course, facts seem to consistently escape Mr. H. He sees this site as a bigger threat than someone who might stick a gun in his face and pull the trigger.

There is no place for any of you to assume you are safe from something like this. When you choose to be defenseless, you also choose the consequences.

Get professional training. Get a gun and an IC carry permit, then use them. Go to the range and practice. Regularly.

If you are female, you are a target. You have things thugs want (money, sex, valuables) and you are assumed to be defenseless, or very close to it. If you do have a weapon, it's probably in your purse, which is the first thing the thug will grab when he slips up behind you. Wear your gun on your person, under your clothes. It may save your life, or the life of someone you love.

I lived in Flowood. I now live in Jackson. I don't lie to myself about my safety in either place. There are no guarantees.

I was shopping at Bed, Bath, & Beyond at Dogwood on a beautiful sunny afternoon one day in the not too distant past. An hour later, another female shopper in precisely the same place I'd just been was kidnapped and subjected to one of the most brutal rapes I can recall hearing of.

The only person who is sure to be there when you need them is YOU. Make your choices accordingly.

Good Christian folk out there in the burbs. Typing and clicking away. Shopping at their taxpayer-owned shopping centers. Voting for Trump. Talking about how "queers" and "Mezicans" are taking over while drinking white zinfandel and living in constant fear of "Jackastan". Special folk..

Actually, it's just Zinfandel. And it's more like constant "irritation." The rest is pretty close. At least for me.

One of my sons was held up at gunpoint in Fondren and robbed. He was again assaulted after a break-in in Fondren. He moved back home to Brandon where our cars were broken into and his audio equipment was stolen.

When we lived near JA and my children went to school there, we had not one problem and my kids could walk home from school.

When we lived in NE Jackson a bit farther from JA we had not one problem.

It's not where you live, it's who is in your neighborhood.

You mean those shopping centers (and movie theaters - BOOM) that are full of Hinds Co. tags spending money in the burbs. Love, love, love them keeping my car tags low, millage rates steady, roads maintained and schools that rival the private ones. "Thank you for shopping at the burbs. Y'all come back you hear!"

8:44, There isn't any reason for a criminal to drive into Jackson. Anything worth stealing has already been stole. No one has any money, and you can buy sex on the street for very little cash.
Why would a criminal drive to Jackson? I forgot, it is a safe haven for criminals. Reach the city limits and you are free.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
