With an electrician left alone at her home, a Riverview resident was beaten and attacked with a knife as the worker attempted to rape her.
“Jane Doe” is suing the electrical company, Big Daddy Electric and its owner, Aaron Allen, after an employee attacked the tenant of the property they were working at.
Doe claims the company should have known of the potential danger posed by the employee. A background check performed by Doe revealed the employee was convicted of murder.
Big Daddy, located at 21817 Dupree Dr. in Land O’Lakes, faces three counts of negligence and vicarious liability.
On April 13, 2016, Doe moved into her home in Riverview. She noticed electrical problems shortly after moving in and notified her landlord.
By April 29, Big Daddy employee Adam Millan, a Ruskin resident, was sent out to the home to determine what repairs were necessary. It was discovered work was needed and Millan returned with Allen May 18.
Allen left the house, leaving Millan with Doe. Millan then left, telling Doe he needed to get supplies. However, when he returned, he attacked Doe with a knife and “attempted to sexually assault and kill” her, says the suit.
Doe was saved when a neighbor heard her screams and came to the rescue.
Millan was arrested the next day for burglary of a dwelling with assault or battery, sexual battery on a person over 18, and aggravated battery causing great bodily harm.
As of Jan. 4, Millan is still in jail. He has a record in Hillsborough County and, allegedly, has a record in New York for manslaughter.
It is unclear if Big Daddy ever ran a background check on Millan.
At the time of the initial inspection, Doe’s boyfriend was present; on the date of the attack, he was not home.
