THE BRONX - Residents on one West Farms street are being sent into complete darkness at night, causing them to constantly look over their shoulders outside. 

According to neighbors on Rodman Place, there is only one street light on their block, but it has been out for more than two months, making them nervous about heading out at certain times. 

Residents complain that they've already called 311 and the Department of Transportation numerous times about the problem. 

News 12 has also reached out to the DOT and is still waiting to hear back.
