JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson woman says her family is being threatened by neighborhood thugs that beat up her son.

Angela Dixon says the problems started last Friday when her son was jumped and his phone stolen.

Dixon claims she spotted the attacker later that night and called police, but they took too long to respond to her call.

During that time the man took her car and went joy riding in it.

Since then Dixon has received threatening text messages from someone, who has also sent pictures of semi-automatic weapons and has stated claims about knowing where she lived and shooting up her home.

"I'm threatened over here I live on the same street these guys stay on and they're not doing anything and I live half a block from police station and they're still threatening me," Dixon said.

Jackson Police detectives spoke with Dixon Tuesday afternoon.

Dixon was able to identify those who were sending her threats, and has now filed affidavits against them.
