Cops seek man who threw molotov cocktails at Lynn bar
A Lynn bar was hit by two molotov cocktails after an altercation there involving a patron and now police are seeking the person responsible.
Police are asking for the public's help identifying a man they believe tossed a pair of molotov cocktails at a Lynn bar following an incident there last month.
Massachusetts State Police on Tuesday released surveillance photos of the man who was inside the bar the night of the incident.
The incident took place Dec. 20, just before closing time, at Players Sports Bar in Lynn. Police said the man in the surveillance photos was involved in a fight inside the bar and about 30 minutes later a person fitting his description threw two molotov cocktails at the bar.
Other patrons at the bar said the man's name is Vincent and that he may be from Revere or a surrounding community, police said.
Police described the suspect as a white or Hispanic man who was wearing a gray hoodie and a dark baseball hat.
