CLEVELAND - For the second time in less than a week, Cleveland police are investigating what they call a hate crime.
It happened outside of a gay bar called Cocktails on West 93rd Street and Detroit Avenue Friday night.
Surveillance cameras captured images of a small group of kids throwing rocks over the wall of an enclosed patio at the bar. Ric Scardino said he was cooking food on the patio when the rocks started flying.
"All of a sudden a rock came in and it angered me so much, I didn't want another Jared Fox," Scardino said.
Jared Fox was the man punched, kicked and beaten while walking to the bar on West 93rd Street around midnight on Aug. 31.
The group of kids allegedly involved in the second incident appeared to be smaller than the group caught on camera attacking Fox.
Police arrested a 13-year-old in connection with the rocks thrown.
The city and police said they are working to arrest those responsible in both incidents.
Cleveland police said they have beefed up patrols in the area and this past weekend officers handed out nearly three dozen citations, including those for curfew violations.
