I knew that it would be just a matter of time when this corner store opened before something like this would happen!! Huge safety risk you take opening that type of store in that stretch of Nine Mile. Not worth it.

This is a critical situation. Henrico section of Nine mile road and Dabbs House is very dangerous as well. Seniors are being followed and stalked by unknown men. The doors are being pulled open by these trespassers. The registered sex offender list is big in the 23223 area and yet the property parking lots are dark. The owners of this senior community need to rectify these concerns. How the hell is there protection when doors can be pulled open and the parking lot lights are out. Must we walk with guns in our hands? Henrico police need to patrol our senior community more often as well.

This is a sad situation. Nine mile and Dabbs House Rd. Is getting worse as well. The Senior community on Dabbs House Rd is dangerous.parking lights are out and non residents are pulling the doors open and following residents.I do not feel safe at all. A man jumped out and followed me into the building the other night. He wanted to use my cell phone. I told him I did not have it. He starred me down. I starred back and told him that he can not follow behind me. Thank God he backed out and left. The owners of this property needs to secure the entrance doors. Various rules are being implemented but no protection for human lives. Management is aware of these dangerous conditions however, the residents were told if they dont like things here then get out. At least RRHA cares about there senior residents. Does someone have to be killed or injured or raped in order to get better security? Shame on the owners of this property.
