Is it true that "The Dilworth area too has seen a huge spike in crime, with burglaries and rape, drug dealing, etc.," as someone wrote on another thread?

Just a little mini crime wave during the holidays. Five or six homes were broken in to while the owners were sleeping so that theives could grab whatever they saw (purses, laptops ect) and dash out. One homeowner thwarted their efforts by running them out of his house and it hasn't happened again since. Dilworth is a very nice place to live, but closer in and therefore more "urban" so some property crime does occur every so often. The last rape there was about a year or so ago (that I know of being reported in the media) when a female jogger was pulled behind a building at dawn one morning. That guy was eventually caught.

I apologize - I shouldn't have used the word "huge" in describing the spike in crime. I was trying to make the point that even the higher end neighborhoods such as Dilworth have crime.

I work in Dilworth and we've definitely been on alert in recent weeks - we had a guy walk into our building the day of our holiday party a few weeks ago and while we were in one section of the building the guy came in and cased the other section and managed to get a laptop before being discovered by one of the senior executives who hadn't made it to the party yet. The guy ran down the stairwell, got into a waiting car and drove off.

The neighborhood newsletter did let our office know of three intersections in Dilworth where drug deals had taken place, but also said that police were aware and were actively patrolling the area to curtail that situation.

But for the most part Dilworth is a LOVELY LOVELY area (I drive around everyday on my lunch hour just looking at various houses because they are so nice).
