Several Valley neighborhoods saw increases in violent crime in last week, Times database shows

Several L.A. County communities saw significant increases in violent crime and property crime in the last week, according to The Times' crime-tracking database.

Several neighborhoods in the San Fernando Valley, including Woodland Hills and Reseda, recorded increases in violent crime between Sept. 28 and Oct. 4. Woodland Hills had seven violent crimes during that period, and Reseda had 11. It's important to note that neither neighborhood has an especially high crime rate, so even with the spike in the last week, the area recorded less crime --and less serious crime -- than other parts of L.A.

For that week, here are the communities tracked by Crime L.A. that saw significant crime increases:
