A 16-year-old from Hampton has been arrested after police say he made threatening phone calls to two Boston gay bars earlier this month.
From the Boston Police Department website:
At about 9:30 PM, on Friday, November 23, 2018, officers from the Seabrook New Hampshire Police Department located and arrested a 16-year-old male from Hampton, NH, who was wanted in connection to an investigation surrounding threatening phone calls which had been received at two Boston area bars.
At the time of his arrest, the suspect was wanted on outstanding warrants sought out of Suffolk County Juvenile Court for Threats with Serious Public Alarm and Civil Rights Violations in connection to that investigation as well as additional warrants stemming from other charges from outside jurisdictions.
The suspect remains held at this time as a Fugitive from Justice. The Boston Police Fugitive Unit has responded and is collaborating with the Seabrook Police Department to arrange for the suspect’s return to the area for arraignment.
The threatening phone calls were made to the dbar and Alley Bar in Boston.
Rocco LaMonica, the manager at Alley Bar, told the Boston Herald: “Nobody wants to prosecute someone and ruin someone’s life.”
“Hopefully maybe this way, of talking to them, seeing we’re not the enemy, they’ll see it’s okay to be who you are,” he added.
