A violent North Hollywood street gang made 50 documented efforts to intimidate Viviana Guerra into silence, but the single mother of seven went on reporting crimes and suspicious activities to the authorities. Other apartment managers in besieged communities around the nation have sometimes knuckled under to criminals by ignoring illicit activity and by allowing the crooks to use their buildings as refuges. Guerra, whose job was to manage the London Manor Apartments, was different.

An anti-gang crusader who has been the target of harassment by a local gang, was injured Saturday when a suspected gang member threw a rock that struck her in the head, Los Angeles police said. Viviana Guerra, 36, suffered a deep laceration, but refused to be taken to a hospital, said Lt. Don Hooper of the LAPD'S North Hollywood station. Minutes after the attack, police arrested Luis Salazar, 21, and a 16-year-old youth and booked them on assault charges, Hooper said.

Police have a book on Viviana Guerra, a single mother who is trying to make a real home for her seven children in a tough North Hollywood neighborhood overrun by gangs, graffiti and drugs. In a way, it is more horrifying than the other books the police keep, the ones with the pictures of the pushers, gunmen and thieves who are waging a battle with police to control Guerra's neighborhood.

A Van Nuys jury convicted a gang member Friday who had threatened the mother of seven children by simulating a gun with his hand. Maximilliano Guerrero, 20, of Lynwood faces up to six years in state prison for pointing his finger at Viviana Guerra and saying "Bang, bang, you're dead." Guerrero was found guilty of making terrorist threats. Guerra, who stood up to gang members and pushers in her neighborhood, said she was relieved by the verdict.
