On October 5, 2010, a suspect stabbed a man outside the Orleans Hotel & Casino during an attempted robbery. Police said the suspect was “lying in wait” in the victim’s van, which was parked in the casino’s parking lot, according to the Las Vegas Sun. Police are now searching for the suspect, who they believe to be a Hispanic male who is about 5-feet-10 inches tall.
This tragedy could have premises liability implications for the Orleans Hotel and Casino. Property owners can be held liable when they fail to provide adequate security in or outside of their premises and a person is injured as a result, even when the person is injured because of a criminal attack.
