Sean Kuilan, a 34-year-old Hell’s Kitchen resident, was taken into custody Tuesday on charges of criminal mischief, reckless endangerment, and criminal possession of a weapon.
Police said that Kuilan threw a brick or a rock at the window of VERS, a gay bar on 9th Avenue, on three separate occasions since last Sunday.
The most recent attack came around 10 p.m. on Saturday night. Security footage showed an individual approaching the bar, throwing what the NYPD said was a heavy rock in full view of several pedestrians, then casually walking off.
