According to Rowe’s complaint, he was taking a shower at the D.C. jail on August 24, 2003, when he was stabbed several times by an unknown assailant. As a result, Rowe suffered stab wounds to his stomach, chest, arm, and right shoulder. Rowe also fell during his attack, sustaining a back injury.
Rowe claimed the guards were negligent and that they failed to properly monitor and supervise the shower area and that this negligence was the proximate cause of his injuries.
