Guide Staff in Dealing with Dangerous Applicants
The manager of a Texas tax credit site reported that a cunning criminal got into the management office by pretending to be a rental applicant. The criminal asked to tour a vacant unit. A female member of the leasing staff, who was on duty alone in the office at the time, had a bad feeling about him. But she shook it off, considering him a prospect, and turned to get her handbag so they could begin the tour. He struck her on the back of the head, grabbed the handbag, and fled the office.
