Parking facilities present inherent security challenges as they frequently occupy a large space with low levels of activity and numerous hiding places for would-be attackers. While store and parking facility owners are required by law to protect patrons from any foreseeable harm, patrons can take steps to protect themselves.

WKRN asked self-defense instructors, Cat and Liz Fitzgerald, to demonstrate how potential victims can protect themselves from predators in stores and parking facilities. Watch the video here.

https://www.legal-chronicle.com/files/2018/07/Screen-Shot-2018-07-11-at-2.01.58-AM.png

WKRN urges store parking lot patrons to follow these guidelines in a “carjacking situation”:

  1. Just Give Thieves What They Want: If a carjacker approaches you and demands to take your car, let him.
  2. Park Close to Parking Garage Exits and Back Into Spaces: A quarter of all carjackings occur in parking garages or parking lots, or near commercial areas.
  3. Your Phone Is Your Enemy: Walking to your car, phone in hand, or even just sitting in the driver’s seat with your phone might turn you into a target because you’re not paying attention to your surroundings.

Victims of Store and Parking Facility Violence: Know Your Rights

Store and parking facility patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises of the establishment they are visiting. By law, property owners are required to protect all patrons legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. For example, should a parking facility owner have knowledge of prior violence on or near property, they have a responsibility to implement additional security precautions to protect patrons and deter such crime. Should a parking facility owner fail in this critical responsibility, they may be held civilly liable for any injuries or wrongful deaths which occur as a consequence.

Parking garages present inherent security challenges as they frequently occupy a large space with low levels of activity and numerous hiding places for would-be attackers.

A woman was sexually assaulted in the RSA Battle House Tower parking garage Tuesday, June 5, 2018, according to FOX 10 reports. Police told media the incident occurred “around 9:20 a.m. in the RSA Tower parking garage on Water Street.”

The attack raises grave security concerns for parking facility owners throughout the state. Mobile police are now making “suggestions to RSA on how to improve security so a crime like this doesn’t happen again.”

“This is a pretty open parking garage. It’s pretty easy for people to get into,” Public Safety Director James Barber told FOX 10. “There is a lot of walk through traffic also that occurs between the RSA and YMCA and so again, what type of measures can they reasonably take to secure the area from unauthorized entry and certainly people that are up to ill will.”

Could the senseless shooting of this young Forestville man have been prevented?

Gunfire erupted in a Forestville parking lot Wednesday, May 16, 2018, claiming the life of 19-year-old TyJuan Lawrence.

Prince George County Police told media “officers responded to the 3200 block of Walters Lane,” around 11 a.m., where “they discovered Lawrence in a parking lot suffering from gunshot wounds.” Tragically, he succumbed to fatal injuries. Police have since made an arrest in connection with the shooting, per Washington Post reports.

There is an apparent history of criminal activity in the area. Following coverage of a July 2016 shooting at a nearby apartment complex, The Sentinel reported there had been “a number of shootings and homicides along Waters Lane over the years.” Sadly, it appears the violence continues.
