Hi Aimee,
Full disclosure: I'm just a broker, not a lawyer. We are trained to understand that property disclosure requirements do not include crimes committed in or near properties we represent, with the exception of meth labs inside the property. That said, even if he wasn't required to disclose any crime-related information doesn't make it OK to make an untrue statement intended to put your fears at ease. You could ask him to ternate the lease early and if that doesn't help, explore your options to terminate that lease, speak with your lawyer.
Good luck!
