“I signed a $2,700 a month lease,” resident Shanaz Rahman told Channel 2. “I was expecting to at least feel safe in my apartment complex, but I don’t.”
She said her vehicle was among the 76 damaged.
“The windows were bashed in,” she said. “There was blood in my car. They got away with cash, they got away with pepper spray, (and) they got away with some IDs.”
Rahman said the gate to the complex was broken when the thefts occurred. The Connor Group, the investment firm that owns The Edge, said in a statement to Channel 2 that it could not confirm if the gate was functional, citing the ongoing investigation.
The complex plans to add more security cameras and an additional officer to provide round-the-clock security, the news station reported. Officials have also requested increased patrols by the Atlanta Police Department.
