SPOKANE, Wash. -- A North Spokane neighborhood can not seem to catch a break. Two people were arrested at a house along the 4600 block of North Lincoln on Monday. The suspects are accused of kidnapping a woman and this is not the first arrest for this neighborhood recently.

Back in January, the area near Lincoln and Wellesley was rocked with a deadly shooting and a bizarre murder. Then SWAT raided the same home in March after several complaints about drug activity. Police spent Monday investigating a kidnapping and possible sexual assault just one block away.
   
Neighbors told KREM 2 News that things have gone from bad to terrifying in the past few months.

“I'm afraid to go out, work on my yard, open my blinds. I don't like people looking in,” said Carol Morphy.

She said the neighbor changed drastically at the start of 2013.

“It used to be a nice neighborhood, but it's getting rough down with everything. It's not good,” added Morphy.

She woke up to police walking through her yard and crime tape everywhere in January. Police said 19- year-old Dylan Heinen was accidently shot by his friend Jeremy McVicker. The suspect tried to dismember the body with a hatchet according to police.

SWAT raided the same home a few months later for drugs.
