Deli Employee Dead After Being Stabbed By Customer

CBS New York has reported that a stabbing occurred at the K & B Gourmet Deli located at 300 E 102nd St, New York, NY 10029. 

On October 19, 2021, an employee at the East Harlem deli was stabbed following an argument with a customer. Allegedly the dispute stemmed from the customer demanding the employee give him a discount on his purchase. When the victim refused, surveillance showed the scuffle spilling out on the street before he was stabbed in the torso. The victim was transported to New York-Presbyterian Hospital but died from the stab wounds. 

The suspect fled the scene, and a $5,000 reward has been offered for information that may lead to his arrest.

Financial Compensation Awarded for Stab Victims

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. Recently Laurence shared his insight on stabbing victims and their families' legal right to sue and financial compensation.

"Victims of stabbings, and their families, may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit in order to attain the financial compensation they deserve. This could be used to cover medical bills, therapy, or, worse, burial costs. However, to determine if a civil lawsuit is a right option for you or your family, it is recommended to seek the experience of a violent crime attorney."

"An attorney may need to prove the property owner was negligent in order to hold them liable. If property owners fail to implement adequate security, they could be found negligent. Some security precautions may include security cameras, proper lighting, and proper training. Additionally, if the area saw an increase in crime, the property owner would be responsible for increasing its security, or the crime could be deemed foreseeable. The attorney would have to prove that the property owner failed to provide adequate security and that the crime was foreseeable."
