23 crimes in one part of Denver over eleven days: See where they happened

Most of us tend to hear about major crimes in Denver. But what about the lower-profile offenses, such as robberies, burglaries and assaults? A website called RAIDS Online tracks them in a number of Colorado cities, including Denver -- and there are plenty of them. We looked at the quadrant of Denver that encompasses Westword's offices at 10th and Broadway and found listings for 23 crimes in just eleven days, from April 2 to April 13. What happened and where? Let us show you. [jump]

As you can see from the RAIDS Online screen capture below, the area we chose to examine is bordered by Colfax on the north, Kalamath to the east, 8th Avenue to the south and Downing to the east.

Below, we've paired RAIDS Online data about all 23 incidents, including time, date, crime and approximate address, with interactive graphics captured near each scene. If you have problems seeing the images, click "View Larger Map."
