Feb. 2015: Oxbow residents ALERT!
An alarming number of violent attacks and break-ins occurred last week IN OUR OXBOW SUBDIVISION.

  • Wednesday 2/11 night there was an ARMED home invasion on Spring Ridge, and both men got away. (They were about 5'6" or 5'7", ski mask.)
  • Thursday morning 2/12 another home was broken into on Spring Crest. I don't have further details.
  • Friday 2/13 in Bamberger Park (just across the street from the trail head on Babcock) a UTSA runner was attacked by two men, same description, and armed. Here's the link to that:  http://www.kens5.com/story/news/2015/02/16/college-senior-woman-attacked-gun-point-bamberger/23519973/
  • On the morning of February 19 at Bamberger Park (13100 block of Babcock Rd) the listed suspect shown in the photo below sexually assaulted a female victim. The Suspect was clad in a dark blue hoodie with a white t-shirt over the top, dark blue pants, and was carrying a dark colored backpack.

Very few residents pay dues. What is in the treasury pays for electricity on the entrance island, plus website hosting for this website. The lights need to stay on--a dark entrance is an invitation to more crime. And this website helps us stay informed about issues in our neighborhoods. For more about this, see here:
