According to a University City District (UCD) crime update released last week, 43 serious crimes were reported in the boundaries that UCD covers in January, including five gunpoint robberies, three unarmed robberies, two aggravated assaults with a gun, and four residential burglaries. There were also multiple thefts from cars last month, according to the report.

Three arrests were made last month – one in connection to a robbery, and two for an aggravated assault. Most of the crimes were concentrated between 41st and 49th Streets (see the map). 

Although the number of crimes committed in the area this January is relatively high, it is not the highest in the past five years (check out more UCD crime statistics here).

Since the number of thefts involving cars was high last month, UCD reminds folks that the best way to prevent your car being broken into is to lock your doors and hide all valuables out of plain sight.
