Crime Clusters on Just 5 Days

Of 110 crimes reported, 30 occurred on these five days: Oct. 12, 21, 26, 28 and Nov. 2.

During the 48 days from Sept. 25 through Nov. 12, there were 110 reported crimes in the Chatsworth area, according to CrimeMapping.com, a website which aggregates daily crime reports directly from the Police Department.

After an , Chatsworth cooled off as the school year began. However, crime has tipped upward once more, although remains low.

During the last reporting period Chatsworth averaged 1.6 crimes a day, this cycle averaged 2.3 crimes a day, an increase of almost 45 percent.

However, the increase may not be part of a larger trend. Of the 110 total crimes reported, a whopping 30 occurred on just five of the 48 days: Oct. 12, 21, 26, 28 and Nov. 2.

The similar nature of the crimes, the closeness of many of the locations and the short period of time all imply that these statistics are possibly the result of an individual or group of individuals going on a spree rather than an aggregate increase in criminality. The closeness of these dates to Halloween is another possible contributing cause.

Fortunately, though crime as a whole increased, violent crime represented only 4 of the 110 reported cases, less than 5 percent of the total.

The reported crimes in Chatsworth were: 48 thefts from vehicles, 25 burglaries, 20 thefts, 13 grand theft autos, two robberies and two assaults.
