The general common law principle is that there is no duty to protect against harm caused by the criminal act of a third party. The exception is that a duty is imposed to take reasonable measures where such criminal acts are foreseeable.

Inadequate Security cases generally involve an injury to an individual as a result of a criminal assault or robbery at a commercial premises. These frequently occur at malls, shopping centers, hotels, motels, office buildings, schools or parking garages. The majority of cases arise from strong arm robberies and sexual assaults. An armed robbery involves the use of a weapon. A “purse snatch” may be a strong armed robbery (if a weapon is used), or a robbery (when a purse is taken without threat or any contact).
