Default question about aggressive behavior in dogs

I have a question and need some opinions. I live in an apartment, and
a neighbor has two large dogs that exhibit aggressive behavior. On
more than one occasion, as I was entering or leaving my apartment, the
neighbor was walking the dogs when they lunged at me unexpectedly,
growling and barking with bared teeth. I don't know what triggers this
behavior, as one second they are just walking along and the next they
look like they want to attack. On all of these occasions the neighbor
was able to restrain the dogs by leash, but just barely as these dogs
probably weigh more than she does. I believe they would attack me if
they got loose. I spoke to my apartment manager about this, but she
said there was little they could do as the dogs hadn't bitten me.

So, what should I do?
