Did a security failure contribute to this unconscionable Charlotte apartment complex sexual assault and stabbing?

LOCAL NEWS

A woman was allegedly sexually assaulted and then stabbed at a Charlotte apartment complex, Wednesday evening, February 13, 2019.

According to Fox46Charlotte.com, “[t]he man attacked the woman around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday at the Courtney Ridge Apartments off Billy Graham Parkway.”  The news outlet goes on to say that “the victim, 32, was standing by her car when she was approached by man who then sexually assaulted her.”  WBTV.com is reporting that the victim attempted to fight and that is when “[t]he man then cut her with a knife and fled the scene.”

WBTV.com reports that a “K-9 unit attempted to track the man down but was unable to do so.”

Our Legal Take

Apartment residents and guests have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this unconscionable attack may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence or assault on property?
  • How did the assailant gain entry to the property?
  • What security measures, such as gated-entry, fencing, surveillance cameras, and security patrols, were in place to deter crime and protect residents at the time of the assault? 

Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the apartment complex owner or management company failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for her injuries and suffering.

Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
