CLEVELAND -- Police have arrested a 13-year-old suspected in a hate crime attack at a west side bar Friday evening.
Police say a group of juveniles attacked a bartender at Cocktails Lounge on Detroit Avenue by throwing rocks at him and his patrons while yelling obscenities.
The attack happened around 8 p.m. while the bartender was serving drinks outside the bar in a patio area.
When the bar patrons went after the suspects, they fled. They later returned with sticks and a broom, threatening to attack the bartender. That's when the victim called police.
Officers were able to locate the arrested teen near West 87th Street and Detroit Avenue. He was positively identified by the bartender.
Police continue to investigate the incident.
