In the early hours of Thursday, February 2, 2006, eighteen year-old Jacob Robida entered a gay bar in New Bedford, Massachusetts, fifty miles (93 km) south of Boston. The teenager, dressed in black, entered the Puzzles Lounge, a popular local bar, around midnight. Robida proceeded to order a drink using a fake ID which indicated his age was twenty-three. After downing his first drink, he asked the bartender if the lounge was a gay bar. The bartender confirmed that it was. After finishing his second drink, Robida swung a hatchet at a patron’s head, injuring him. Other patrons tackled him and relieved him of the hatchet, whereupon Robida produced a handgun and began shooting, wounding at least three more people.
Robida then fled the scene; both the hatchet and a machete were later recovered by authorities in the bar. Robida was then wanted on three counts of attempted murder. Police treated the incident as a hate crime. In total, four people were seriously hurt in the attack. Local authorities immediately began a manhunt for Robida and raided his mother’s home in New Bedford. They talked to his mother, who told them that she had last seen Robida at 1:00 a.m. bleeding from the head and that he had left soon after. They found weapons of all types, including hatchets, knives, a few handguns, as well as a shotgun. When police entered Robida’s bedroom, they found “Nazi regalia” and anti-Semitic writings all over his bedroom walls.  Fearing that he may have left Massachusetts, the local authorities contacted the FBI, which sparked a nationwide manhunt. Flyers were distributed all over Massachusetts, which gave a depiction of Robida, and stated that he was driving a 1999 green Pontiac.
