CLEVELAND - Residents living in Cleveland's North Broadway neighborhood believe a felonious assault case, involving gunfire on their street, proves the city's bail system needs continued reform.
Police report 21-year-old Kane Antonio Anderson opened fire on a car driven by Jennifer Penrod on Sept. 7, but Penrod told News 5, Anderson was released from jail just four days later on a bond of just over $2,000.
Penrod said the suspect lives just a block away from her home, and can't believe Anderson was given such a small bond, for what could have been an attempt on her life.
"This is the bullet hole that hit the back of my car on Monday, which could have hit the gas tank, could have hit me in the head," said Penrod. "It could have hit my 4-year-old grandson."
"I can't believe he was given such a low bond." I'm going to be in fear for my life, my dogs, my family, my 4-year-old grandson, for how long?" Penrod said.
News 5 contacted Cleveland Municipal Court and it defended the bond issued to Anderson, showing us the risk assessment report on the case.
