A spokesman for Smallwood Apartments says a "no trespass" list could have stopped a fight which took place before Lauren Spierer disappeared.

Lauren Spierer returned to her apartment building with her friend Corey Rossman after leaving Kilroy‘s Sports Bar at 2:30 a.m. last Friday morning. Rossman was in the fifth floor lobby when he was punched in the face by a friend of Spierer‘s boyfriend Jesse Wolff. Smallwood Plaza Apartments spokesman Ernie Reno said Rossman was not supposed to be allowed in the building.

“We do have a ‘no trespass‘ list that does exist,” he said. “There is a list of people who have historically caused problems here and our security folks keep track of them.”

Witnesses say Spierer and Rossman left the building and went to Rossman‘s apartment nearby where they stayed until Spierer left around 4:30, the last time she was seen. Rossman‘s attorney Carl Salzmann tells the “Journal News” in Westchester, New York that after the two arrived at Rossman‘s apartment, his roommate put Rossman to bed. Salzmann would not say if his client was a person of interest but says Rossman is cooperating with police.

“The difference between a person of interest or a suspect, I’ve never been able to quite figure out what that is,” Salzmann said.

Rossman said he woke up with no knowledge of the events of the night before.
