Downtown Dallas resident attacked, robbed in parking garage

A Dallas special needs teacher said she was ambushed in her downtown Dallas parking garage, beaten, and robbed by two men Thursday night.

Sarah Hoff said she was attacked on the 8th floor of the garage at the Davis Building about 9:30 p.m. Thursday. Her face is cut and heavily bruised after she said two men punched her at least four times then stole her belongings and her car.

The 37-year-old said she was worried about her safety at the luxury apartment building before the attack and even gave notice recently to move because of her feelings.

“I’m afraid I have to leave. I don't even want to live here anymore. We haven't been here that long, but I don't want to live here,” Hoff said. “I’m afraid every time I hear the door I’m like, ‘Who is it? Lock the door.’”

Hoff described the two men as African Americans in their mid-20's.

She said after stealing her car the suspects tried using her credit card at an area gas station and McDonalds.

Property management said in response to the incident and others in the area, a downtown safety meeting is now planned for 6 p.m. Monday at the Woolworth in downtown.
