Where are the most common places for violent crime?

Posted on October 26, 2021

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has named the top places where violent attacks or crimes occurred, according to a recent article.

Among the 675,517 violent crimes that occurred in 2020, the FBI ranked parking garages, restaurants, and alleyways among the top ten.

Most violent crimes are committed by strangers – those unknown to the victim – and a gun is the most common weapon used.
