Street danger highlighted

 
April 5th 2014
 

The streets have become an increasingly dangerous place to be homeless in the USA, according to a new report published this month.

Homeless people experienced a 23 per cent surge in targeted attacks last year when compared to the number of assaults in 2012, according to preliminary figures released by the National Coalition for the Homeless (NCH).

In 2013, there was a total of 108 reported attacks against homeless people, according to preliminary figures. Nineteen of those assaults resulted in death. The year before, there were 88 reported attacks, 18 of which resulted in death.

The data was collected from news reports, homeless service providers and homeless people themselves.
