RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- Bartenders who work in downtown Raleigh say they're on edge after recent attacks.

Deana Qadura, general manager of Anchor Bar on Fayetteville Street, said she's been compiling a list of incidents.

Qadura said that a number of downtown workers have been attacked while walking home from work.

She said she plans to take the list to the Raleigh Police Department and the city council in an effort to get more officers patrolling when people are downtown late at night.

Raleigh police sent the following statement to ABC11:

"We have not had an increase in these types of reports."
