The jogger scrambled away, ducked into heavy foliage, and remained silent.

She called the police and her husband. He came out to get her and both waited on Atlanta Police Zone Two precinct officers to explain what happened.

They never saw the white van again.

"It's amazing," one homeowner said, "that she was able to remain calm and get away."

Another resident said, "I'm terrified. We all feel safe out here or did."

Police, right now, are not saying much about the incident. They want to assure residents an active investigation is underway.

The neighborhood has a private security patrol. Residents were sent an email, advising them to run or walk in groups.
