    No, because most men do not rape. However, statistically, crime rates are higher in low income urban areas than in middle- and high-income areas.

    The rape occurred in Englewood IL, which has the third highest violent crime rate out of 77 areas in Chicago.

    Of course you can find instances of brutality in higher income areas. That doesn't change the fact that people who live in low income areas are at much greater risk of being victims of violent crime.
