Two Victims Wounded In Country Club Stabbing

NBC New York has reported that a stabbing occurred just outside the V.I.P. Country Club located at 600 Davenport Ave, New Rochelle, NY 10805. 

Police responded to the stabbing around 11 p.m. on Wednesday, April 27, 2022. When they arrived, they found two victims, one suffering from a stab wound to the abdomen and the other with a slash wound to the back.

At the time of the attack, 25-year-old Elijah Santiago was working as a valet at the Country Club.

Santiago was arrested and is facing a felony assault charge in addition to criminal possession of a weapon.

Filing Lawsuits for Stabbings at a Country Club

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of violent crimes, like stabbings and shootings. He recently shared some information on the legal options available to victims stabbed at a country club.

"Property owners, such as country clubs, have a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for their customers as well as their employees. This may include establishing security measures such as well-lit parking lots, functioning security cameras, and trained security personnel. If a violent crime occurs on the property and the owner failed to provide adequate security, they could be liable due to their negligence."

"After a violent stabbing, victims may have two alternatives for getting justice. The criminal justice system allows the perpetrator to be charged and sentenced accordingly. However, the victim may have grounds to file a civil suit against the property owner if their security measures were found to be negligent.  

If the victim's attorney could prove that the crime was foreseeable, the victims could recover damages. For instance, if there were prior reports of misconduct on an employee, yet they were ignored and allowed to continue working, the owner could be held liable. Victims should go over their case with an experienced stabbing victim attorney to decide their best choice of legal action."
