Two Men Arrested For Stabbing at Lani Kai Resort in Fort Myers Beach, Florida

Local news source Fox 4 Southwest Florida claims that two men were arrested for the stabbing of a security guard at Lani Kai Resort in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. On the night of June 11th at 1400 Estero Blvd, a security guard was stabbed by two brothers known as Erik and David Olsen.

The victim was told by one of the Olsen brothers that there was a vehicle burglary happening in the parking lot. When the victim arrived at the parking lot he was approached from behind and stabbed by the other Olsen brother. The victim was able to recognize and identify the men involved involved in the stabbing.

According to the victim, just a month prior to the stabbing Erik Olsen had been kicked out of the resort by security for being disruptive. Additionally, earlier that night the two brothers were kicked out of the Lani Kai bar for carrying a bottle filled with liquor. Both brothers were arrested for aggravated battery with a weapon.

Could Hotel Owners be Responsible for Violence on Their Properties?

Attorney Michael Haggard works closely with victims of preventable violent crime in lawsuits against commercial property owners.

"It is the legal duty of all commercial property owners to keep their patrons and employees safe from all foreseeable violent crime. This includes owners of hotels, restaurants, and bars. The owner must provide adequate security to prevent any violent crime, like shootings and stabbings, from happening. If the owner fails to meet their legal duty, and violence does occur on their property due to their negligent security, then they may be held partially liable for the crime. Additionally, if there was a prior history of violence on the property or the surrounding area, the owner is responsible for adjusting the security measures in order to keep patrons safe. Failure to do so may also leave the owner partially responsible for any preventable violent crime that occurs on their property", explained Mr. Haggard.
