The Ten Worst Houston Neighborhoods for Aggravated Assault

Categories: Crime

Aggravated assault is no fun to endure; it's bad enough being assaulted and all, and then you throw in the aggravating part.

If you wish to avoid it, you might consider staying away from these 10 neghborhoods, the ones with the most agg assaults in November, the most recent stats available.

As we've mentioned before, take these with a grain of salt: HPD recommends against making comparisons with raw data because spikes can skew reality; also, some neighborhoods can find their stats affected by a single apartment complex or group of incidents.

That said.....

Norheast side is at the top of both lists for sex offenders and aggravated assault losers. Surprising, considering the west/southwest side of town is the "killing zone" where most of Houston's bodies turn up. Show us the Bayou Body Count map!


All of these neighborhoods are low income and all (or most) have a lot of apartment complexes.

Obviously they just need a big WalMart to come save the day. 2 & 10 will become harmonious utopias once they build the Wal Mart in the Heights. Life will improve with access to Chinese goods.


One thing all these areas have in common.....Many years ago I lived at W. Bellfort and Fondren. No problems. Then I was assaulted, neighborhood was changing. I moved to the suburbs.


Ugh, I wish they would change the name of the Garden Villas Glenbrook beat to reflect what it really is, the train wreck apartments on Broadway beat. It isn't in the neighborhood but the apartments instead.


hmmmmm, wonder why that is?
