Man Fatally Stabbed at Dave & Busters

According to the New York Post, a man was stabbed at the Times Square Dave & Buster's located at 234 W 42nd St 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10036. 

Police reported that 41-year-old Jesse Armstrong allegedly stabbed a man after the two got into an argument around 10:45 p.m. on Saturday, April 30, 2022. Surveillance cameras showed that the victim dropped a prize box as he was trying to place it back on the shelf, but it fell near Armstrong. Armstrong is said to have pulled out "an object" and stabbed the victim in the chest area. The victim was taken to the hospital but pronounced dead later that night. 

Armstrong fled the scene but was apprehended in a nearby subway station. The suspect is said to have as many as 11 prior arrests and is now facing a murder charge.

Can a Restaurant Be Held Liable For a Stabbing?

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville helps victims of violent crimes recover financial compensation by filing civil lawsuits. Laurence recently shared some helpful information regarding when a restaurant can be held liable for a stabbing

"Restaurant and commercial business owners have a legal duty to ensure that their properties are reasonably safe for patrons and staff. Restaurants and entertainment venues are tasked with maintaining security precautions such as working security cameras, parking lots with ample lighting, and sufficient security personnel. Too often maintained security could have prevented stabbings."

"If the restaurant has a history of violence, the owner would be legally accountable for improving the property's security. This could include hiring additional security guards or even introducing metal detectors. If the property has inadequate security and a violent crime takes place, the owner could be held liable in a lawsuit. In cases involving security negligence, stabbing victims or their surviving family members may have reasonable grounds to file a lawsuit. Victims or their families should consult with an experienced stabbing victim attorney to explore their legal options fully."
