RPD Chief discusses 2013 Rochester crime stats

Rochester, N.Y. - Rochester Police Chief James Sheppard released the 2013 mid-year crime statistics for the City of Rochester Wednesday.

Among the reported data:
- 20 of the 30 homicides in the City of Rochester are closed cases
- Overall crime data is down
- Robberies increased 15% as compared to this time last year

Chief Sheppard attributed the rise in robberies to cell phone robberies that noticeably spiked in the second quarter of 2013.

13WHAM's Sean Carroll will have more on these numbers on 13WHAM News at 5 and 6.
