Because the UCR depends upon reports (to the police) of crimes, the “official statistics” on these offences are apt to inaccurately reflect the actual incidence of such crimes.

A property where a violent crime was committed on the premises.
A violent crime or crime of violence is a crime in which the offender uses or threatens to use violent force upon the victim.

Violent crimes include crimes committed with and without weapons.
