Five property crimes in three days in or near the 1800 block of West Slauson were among 12 reported in Chesterfield Square for the seven days ending Sept. 30. In a typical week the neighborhood has fewer than seven property crimes.

Chesterfield Square, a South Los Angeles neighborhood that already has the highest violent crime rate in L.A. County, has seen an uptick in property crimes, according to The Times' Crime L.A. database.

In the seven days between Sept. 24-30, 12 property crimes were reported by the Los Angeles Police Department, including burglaries, thefts, thefts from vehicles and grand theft auto.

In the last six months, Crime L.A. found the Chesterfield Square had the highest per capita rate of violent crime in the regions of L.A. County that the database covers.

The other high violent-crime districts were also clustered largely in the city's Southside, according to Crime L.A.:
