ST. LOUIS – Two individuals who were stabbed at a St. Louis establishment allege that the business failed to provide competent security.
Dustin Spencer and Trenton Brewer filed a complaint on Aug. 27 in the St. Louis Circuit Court against Crusoe's Inc., doing business as The Original Crusoe's Restaurant & Patrick McKeane's Pub, alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiffs allege that on Feb. 19, they were guests at defendant's premises and were stabbed and injured by an intoxicated third-party assailant. They allege they incurred medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering as a result.
The plaintiffs hold Crusoe's Inc. responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide competent and reasonably trained security and failed to protect the plaintiffs.
The plaintiffs request a trial by jury and seek judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $25,000, plus costs and all other relief that are just and proper. They are represented by Michael J. Dalton Jr. and James D. O'Leary of O'Leary, Shelton, Corrigan, Peterson, Dalton & Quillin LLC in St. Louis.
