Unfortunately, this Sunday. August 25, 2014 a twenty year old man is accused of raping a woman who was walking home from a Circle K. News reports alleged that the 20 year old male, Larenz Dauquan Daniel, asked if the female would have sex with him in exchange for $80.00. The female refused, the assailant allegedly grabbed her by the arm, dragged her down an alley, and forced her to perform sexual acts. The female victim alleged that once the assailant heard voices, he stopped. However, he left his shorts, a knife, a shoe and his wallet. The assailant called 911 shortly after the attack and alleged that he had been shot in the back. the victim was taken to Memorial Regional Hospital.
According to Florida law, Land and business owners generally have a duty to provide safe premises for people who are lawfully upon their property. When an individual is hurt due to a crime or an assault on a property individuals such a s the property owner, the tenant, the management company and/or the security company servicing the property may be responsible for injuries sustained by the victim. Of importance, an investigation must be undertaken to determine the following:
1) The violent crimes that have occurred on the property and immediate area within 5-7 years of the attack in question;
2) The security measures in place at the property where the attack happened - security cameras? Security guards? Off-duty police officers? Agreements with local police agencies to patrol the property?
3) The lighting on the property?
4) The landscaping on the property?
5) Secluded areas gated off to the general public?
6) Warning signs?
After reviewing this information, one can determine if the attack and/or violent crime was foreseeable and either the landowner, tenant, security company and/or management company failed to place the correct security measures to protect individuals who were lawfully on its premises.
In the case at hand, many of these questions remain unanswered. In addition, it is not clear where the victim was walking by before she was dragged into an alley. The landowner where the victim was walking on in addition to the landowner where the alley was on may be liable for her injuries.
