Can you get out of the lease without penalty due to safety concerns?

Question Details:

My girlfriend is in an apartment lease floor another 11 months. A mile from where she lives there has been 2 incidents where a women has been forced into her apartment by a man and she is robbed and sexually assaulted. My girlfriend has called her apartment office several times about parking lot lights that are burned out and it has been weeks; they are still not replaced. It is very dangerous and she does not want to live there anymore. Can she break her lease for these reasons and not be held accountable for any other costs? Important Notice
