"I don't feel at rest until he is caught. I don't feel safe when I TMm walking home from school, Melchor said.

I don't feel safe when I TMm alone. When I hear noises at night I TMm up at night thinking it TMs him trying to break in. It's scary to have to live like that, to not feel safe in your own home."
