Tenants angry with managers at Rowan Towers

Tenants say they are unsatisfied with security efforts at the crime-ridden Rowan Towers in Trenton.

The meeting was prompted after several men and boys were accused of raping a 7-year-old girl at a party in the apartment complex on March 28.

Officials met with tenants Wednesday to discuss the company's plans to improve security.

People living in the building say Interstate Realty Management Co., the company that owns the towers, offered no new solutions for improving security.

Management company spokeswoman Laura Zaner says the building plans to hire a consultant to increase security efforts.
