In the present article we reinterpret the routine activities model trying to incorporate some elements of rational choice model. The empirical analysis estimates the probability of victimization. The data base is a victimization survey conducted by FIA/USP and ILLANUD, in 2002. The survey was carried in Recife, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo and Vitória. We consider five categories of victimization: aggression, robbery, theft, burglary and auto theft. The more important factors to explain victimization are the proximity between the victim and the offender and the victim attractiveness. The comparison among cities shows that Recife is the capital with greater probability of victimization.
