Various Forms of Assault

  • ADW Hands, Fist, Feet: Reports increased from 2 incidents in January to 3 in March, with a slight dip in February (1 incident). This trend suggests a moderate rise in physical altercations not involving weapons, which could indicate increasing interpersonal conflicts.
  • Armed and Strong Arm Robbery: Although minor, there is a consistent presence of armed incidents, including street and other robberies, which slightly increased or remained constant, signaling persistent risks in public spaces.

Burglary

Total burglary incidents reduced from 36 in January to 20 in February before rising again in March to 30. Subcategories showing notable decreases included:

  • Other Burglary – Business: From 11 incidents in January down to 3 in February.
  • Other Burglary – Mailrooms: From 8 to 4 in the same period.

This trend may reflect the impact of specific anti-burglary initiatives or an increase in security measures by businesses and residential complexes.

Shoplifting

A significant increase was observed in March, with 23 incidents up from 14 in both January and February. Notably, grand theft shoplifting nearly tripled from 6 incidents in February to 14 in March.

two scooter citations in March, and both for running a stop sign, but it doesn’t say whether they were riding in the street or on the sidewalk.
