WASHINGTON (AP) — A new Metro report says the Deanwood Metrorail station in northeast Washington was the most dangerous stop on the transit system last year.

The Washington Examiner reports that Deanwood topped the list with 67 cases of serious crime, which can include robbery, rape, auto theft or assault. The Anacostia station came in second, followed by the L’Enfant Plaza, Suitland and College Park stations.

The five safest stations were Arlington Cemetery, Clarendon, Eisenhower Avenue, Farragut West and Virginia Sq.-GMU.

The report is scheduled to be presented to Metro board members on Thursday.

Metro overall had a 16 percent decline in serious incidents in 2011 compared with a six-year high recorded in 2010.
