HOUSTON — A tenant is suing a Houston apartment complex alleging she was robbed at gunpoint due to negligent management.
Magaya Kargbo filed a complaint July 11 in Harris County District Court against GPI Mansions LLC doing business as Mansions of Shadowbriar, alleging negligence and liability.
According to the complaint, Kargbo was a tenant at Mansions of Shadowbriar, 12200 Overbrook Lane, Houston. The suit alleges there is no exterior security at the property and it is easy to access by the general public.
On Dec. 15, 2018, the plaintiff says she was outside her apartment at 4 a.m. when she was approached by a man who robbed her at gunpoint of her cellphone and wallet. Kargbo alleges she ran into her apartment and was able to call 911 and police were dispatched to the scene.
The plaintiff says she has learned that there have been numerous incidents similar to the one she experienced, including burglaries, sex offenses, prostitution and drug possession. She alleges the defendant has been negligent through failing to prevent such incidents and also through failing to disclose the dangers associated with the apartments.
Kargbo seeks trial by jury, interest, relief of more than $1 million, court costs, attorney fees and all other just relief. She is represented by attorney Farrah Martinez of Houston.
