Top ten Denver neighborhoods for aggravated assaults

Earlier this week, we posted about the ten Denver neighborhoods where you're most likely to get your car stolen, using Denver Police Department data from 2009 to 2013 obtained by Fox31. But that was only one of several offenses for which figures are available.

Today, our focus is aggravated assault, and the results are quite different from those involving car theft; five neighborhoods didn't appear on the previous list. Look below to count down the top ten, complete with interactive graphics (if you have problems seeing the image, click "View Larger Map") and aggravated assault totals from each area.
