On Wednesday the final numbers were released. The City of St. Louis saw 350 carjackings last year.
5 On Your Side spent several hours going through reports from the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department to find out which neighborhoods had the most carjackings.
Baden – 16 carjackings
Downtown -16 carjackings
Central West End - 15 carjackings
Hyde Park – 13 carjackings

Downtown is one of the areas Chief Hayden is targeting with extra resources to fight crime in 2019.
There are several neighborhoods that saw zero carjackings, according to the data. However, one of those is Wydown-Skinker. That’s where philanthropist Tom Townsend was shot in the face during an attempted carjacking. He was nearly killed, but the gunman didn’t get away with his car.
