DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Despite added patrols in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas following the Orlando massacre... yet another attack occurred early Monday morning.

Police say a man was walking in an alley on Throckmorton Street when he was knocked down by two men and robbed.

Rafael McDonnell with the Resource Center says despite a heavy police presence in the area over the weekend, the community is on edge.

"Its been on edge since the first documented attack. With this latest incident coming so soon after Orlando, so soon after police have yet again ramped up their presence, frustration is probably the emotion we are all feeling."

He says everyone in the community is doing what they can to try and stop the attacks.

"It makes you wonder if the people who are doing all this stuff aren't impressed by the show of force," McDonnell says.

The latest victim was unable to get a description of his attackers.

This is the 20th attack in the area since last October.

Anyone with information about the most recent case may call Dallas police at 214.671.3584.
