Is crime on the rise in Midtown Atlanta?

ATLANTA -- Residents in Midtown specifically have begun to voice their frustration with their safety after a series of crime reports. But is the problem as bad as it seems? 

Midtown Atlanta is known for culture and commerce, green space and walkable streets – but lately it’s been in the news for other reasons.

“Every time you watch the news, all you see is smash-and-grabs, gun hold-ups, tires stolen off the cars,” said Martin Kemp. 

Last weekend, police responded to the break-in of 43 cars at a condo complex on Juniper. 

This weekend, a woman was reportedly robbed at gunpoint as she loaded her children into her car.
