park in geneva. xavier neal is in jail for raping a jogger on friday. neil forced the victim near a dog run. people who use the dog run say police need to step up the patrols in that area. >> they generally patrol down the other side. i said come up here because the probability of something happening down this is less than it would be up here because of the isolation factor. women who play soccer say they try to avoid isolated areas of the park. they say the attack is still a reminder to keep up their guard. san francisco neighborhoods are keeping a careful watch after a string of violent attacks. last saturday night at 11:00, three teens arrested for robbing. 30 minutes later, two suspects
