Safety Group Says Be Diligent Against Crime

Posted: Updated:
Tulsans say they relieved after police announced they had a suspect in custody in the case of seven sexual assaults, but experts say people still need to be vigilant.

It's relief the Michael Twyman, his wife Sarah and 9-month old Millie can experience now that Tulsa's serial sexual assault suspect is in custody. 

"It really puts my mind at ease,” Twyman said. “I got the notification on my phone. I was thrilled whenever I saw that, called her right away and said hey by the way we don't have to worry about this anymore."

While there's relief, experts like Donna Matthews with DVIS say you still have to be cautious. 

"We don't want people to have a false sense of security,” Matthews said. “During the month of June in Tulsa Oklahoma unfortunately there were a total of 55 rape exams."

With a wife and young daughter, Michael is not about to forget crime can happen anywhere and to anyone. It's something he thinks about. 

"I mean simple things like locking the door setting the alarms having a gun all that type of stuff is the best thing I can do,” Twyman said. “Ultimately I have faith and believe that God is going to take care of my family is all I can do."
