Random Dispersal of Points within a Polygon?

Any ideas - I need to randomly disperse my points within a polygon shape file.


There are 2 datasets - one a polygon shape file (cities) and the other from an excel file with coordinates that default to the city center (reports). I need to display my reports within Arcmap, but since we don't have any more detailed information than the city center coordinate, is there a way to make the reports "disperse randomly" so that they are not all grouped on the city center coordinate?


Using Arcmap Desktop 10.2. Already have the excel imported into a shape file, just don't want 10 points all falling on the same point.
