Bar Stabbing Leaves One Man in Critical Condition

The Camarillo Acorn has reported that a stabbing occurred at the Outlaw's Grill and Saloon located at 2167 Pickwick Dr, Camarillo, CA 93010. 

Police responded to a call of a shooting at the bar at about 2 a.m. on November 19, 2021. They found the victim with multiple stab wounds and in critical condition when they arrived. Emergency medical professionals began surgery during transport to the hospital as his condition worsened. He has now been listed as stable. 

The suspected stabber was later identified as 45-year-old Alejandro Rojas. Police reported that the victim apparently was speaking to Rojas' girlfriend, which upset him, causing the fight to ensue. Rojas fled the scene before police arrived, but they were able to apprehend him the next day. He faces charges of attempted murder and vandalism for puncturing the victim's vehicle tires.

Can a Bar Be Held Liable for a Stabbing?

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau is an experienced stabbing victim lawyer representing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Bobby recently shared some information regarding the legal options available to bar stabbing victims. He also answered the common question, Can a bar be held liable for a stabbing?

"It is important that bar and nightclub owners understand their legal obligation to maintain a safe establishment. Due to alcohol consumption, they are at a higher risk for incidents of violent crimes, such as fights, shootings, and stabbings. Implementing sound security practices can help to reduce the risk of these violent actions. The bar owner and staff should understand how to prevent and handle these situations. A few of the suggested safety measures are professionally installed security monitoring software, sufficient lighting, and properly trained security personnel. Without a proper security plan, a bar can be held liable for injuries and criminal activities that affect their patrons and staff."

"It is unfortunate, but some bar stabbings only happen as a result of the bar owner's negligence. If the crime in the establishment or general area had been increasing, it would be the bar owner's duty to improve its safety measures. This could include coat checks and metal detectors. However, if they failed to increase their property security, a court could deem them negligent. In cases involving negligence, violent crime victims may have grounds for a lawsuit and even be entitled to financial compensation. Victims are advised to consult with an experienced stabbing victim lawyer to fully explore their legal options."
