HELL’S KITCHEN, Manhattan (PIX11) — A man accused of throwing a brick at the window of a gay bar in New York City has been arrested, police said Tuesday.
Police arrested Sean Kuilan, 34, on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment and criminal possession of a weapon. He was hit with three counts of each charge.
Police said a man was sought for vandalizing the front window of VERS on Ninth Avenue in Hell’s Kitchen on at least three separate occasions. The incidents occurred on Nov. 13, Nov. 15 and over the weekend, police said.
The bar owner, however, said it happened four times, and that he had already installed shatter-proof glass.
A spokesperson for VERS released a statement after the arrest:
Surveillance video from one of the attacks shows a man throwing a brick at the window of the establishment. The NYPD released photos of a suspect sought in the incident but it remained unclear if that is the person in police custody.
