This investigative report unmasks the escalating crime rate on three Philadelphia college campuses: University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University and Temple University. It compares the crime stats made public by the universities with the actual rate as reported by the police.

In the early morning hours, a Penn student with long auburn hair walks quickly across the South Street Bridge, plugged into her iPod, singing along to music only she can hear. A man in an orange hoodie runs up behind her, shoves her against the railing and presses the barrel of a gun to her neck. She screams. He tells her to shut up or he'll shoot. She is the first of five females to be sexually assaulted and robbed in University City in November 2006.
None of these assaults will be included in Penn's Annual Crime Report.
