The study is based on a sample of 249 violent crimes reported to the police in Huddinge during 1979, 1982 and 1985. Throughout the period it was found that the violence increased not only in number but also in seriousness. Most of the cases took place during weekends and in the evenings. Different accommodations were the most common scene of the crime. The majority of victims and offenders were men. Many were foreign citizens. Three-quarters of the victims had some kind of injury, mostly haematomata and swellings. The left side of the face was the anatomical region mostly hit.
