BALTIMORE (WMAR) — Out of all the cities in America, you're most at risk of getting robbed in Baltimore.

This is according to a newly released study by ADT.

For every 10,000 people, the study found that 95.87 or less than one percent of them would be robbed in Charm City.

The statistics were compiled from the FBI's 2017 crime data analysis.

ADT included all U.S. cities with a population over 20,000 and calculated the robberies per capita based on which city had the most robberies in each state.

In 2017 -- 319,356 robberies were reported across the nation, which is a 28% decrease dating back to 2008.
