The father of the woman police say was slammed into the concrete by Rutgers football captain Leonte Carroo wants the university to provide protection for his daughter.
The woman, who is not being identified as she is considered to be the victim of domestic violence, continues to live on campus over the objections of her family, reports NJ.com.
