Decreasing cases of robbery in Sao Paulo

The number of cases of robbery in the capital fell 29.6% in the first quarter of this year compared with the same period last year.

The improvement of the most serious of crimes against property occurs at the same time that theft in general and theft of vehicles experienced the biggest drop since 2008 in the city. From 2000 to 2009 the homicide rate fell 70% in the city, but the theft had not followed this trend.

Cases of robberies are concentrated between dusk and dawn (68% of cases), more than half of crimes occurred in January (52.6%) while February and March were about at 25% each.
