Stabbing Outside of Keenan’s Bar Leaves Both the Attacker and the Victim Injured

NY Daily News reports that police are searching for a man who stabbed a victim outside of Keenan’s Bar on 5588 Broadway, The Bronx, New York. Papcheikh Coulibaly was exiting the bar when witnesses say he and his attacker began arguing. Papcheikh tried to distance himself from the altercation when the attacker started to stab him in the shoulder and the lower back.

While the attacker was stabbing the victim, he injured himself and sliced off part of his finger. Papcheikh was hospitalized but is in stable condition. What started the argument is unknown, but Papcheikh’s wife claims he did not recognize his attacker.

If you have any information about the suspect please contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.

Can Bar Owners Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of criminal violence in civil lawsuits.

“There are various legal options for victims and their families who were injured or killed due to inadequate security on a commercial property. Bar owners have a legal duty of keeping their patrons and employees safe from preventable dangers”, said Mr. Banville. He went on to explain, “Each case is complex and unique, but in general if a bar owner fails to provide adequate security and a stabbing occurs because of their negligence, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.”

“To add to this, the victim’s lawyer must also prove that the stabbing was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a bar has a history of violent crime then the stabbing may be considered reasonably foreseeable and the owner could be held liable”, concluded Mr. Banville.

If you or a loved one has been a victim to a stabbing, you can learn more about your legal options by reviewing your case with a stabbing victim law firm. We encourage you to reach out to Mr. Banville who provided his legal analysis for this story.
