Suspect in Gay-Bar Attack Wounded in Shootout
A bartender at Puzzles Lounge told The Associated Press that the young man, dressed all in black, ordered a drink and asked if Puzzles was a gay bar. He finished his drink shortly after midnight, ordered another, then started attacking people, the bartender said. Three were hospitalized Thursday. Police were searching for year-old Jacob D.
The teenager, Jacob Robida, was being sought Thursday night by the police, who issued an arrest warrant charging him with three counts each of assault with intent to murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and hate crimes. Robida, 18, entered the Puzzles Lounge around midnight, the police said, and asked the bartender whether it was a gay bar. When the bartender told him it was, Mr. Robida pulled out a hatchet and struck a man in the head, then struck a man who had tried to help the victim, said Capt. Richard Spirlet of the New Bedford police.
