PORTLAND, Ore. --  Where are you more likely to be assaulted: the Moda Center or Pioneer Square?

Where is your car safer from thieves: Around Jeld-Wen Field or Mall 205?

KATU has dug through data from the Portland Police Department to expose which major attractions around the Rose City see the most crime, particularly as we enter the time of year when more people are out shopping, eating out and going to holiday shows.

The numbers surprised us.

For example: We didn’t expect hundreds of car break-ins around one of Portland’s most festive holiday displays.

But Portland Police spokesman Pete Simpson hopes you’ll look beyond the raw data.

“Don’t necessarily take it as face value that ‘this area is bad,’” said Simpson.

Monday at 11, KATU Investigator Bob Heye reveals the latest data on Portland crime trends and offers an exclusive analysis pinpointing where you’re going to be safest when you’re out and about this holiday season.

Watch Bob’s full report tonight at 11pm #liveonK2. You can also stream the report live.
