The police department is advising residents to always be aware of their surroundings and travel in "familiar, high-traffic areas with good lighting, particularly after dark."

It also advises carrying as few valuables as possible, and avoid using phones so you're not distracted.

"This type of crime is not common in our community; however, it is always important to remain vigilant about personal safety," the police department said.
