(KMOV.com) -- There have been several reports of recent robberies and attacks in the Central West End, but those few cases may be creating an distorted perception about crime.

News 4 Wednesday learned through the St. Louis Police Department that crime is actually down.

Between 2010 and 2011 crime took a 16 percent decline, and in 2012- 15 percent.

Wednesday Sharon Reed sat down with business owners and officials to discuss perception versus reality.
