SOMERSWORTH - A survey released last week by real estate website Movato ranked New Hampshire's most dangerous cities. The analysis, according the site, was based on crime per capita.
Somersworth came out on top.
According to the Movato's study, the chances of being the victim to a crime in Somersworth was 1 in 19. That was much higher than Durham - a low crime area - at 1 in 107.
But Somersworth Mayor Dana Hilliard says the statistics are "exaggerated" and the report is "offensive."
Hillard wrote a response to the report saying, "Movoto Real Estate has unjustly painted an image of Somersworth as a community ridden with a rampant crime problem. They have falsely portrayed our streets and neighborhoods as unsafe and unwelcoming."
