Teen threatens to blow a gay bar and then says it was a joke


Randolph Goodwin, 18, phoned gay bar Twisted Rooster in West New Haven Avenue in Melbourne on January 31 at about 4:45pm and asked what time it would be open, according to a press release sent out by West Melbourne Police Department. When the man found out that it was a gay bar he started to scream loudly that he would come and blow it away. Police traced Goodwin’s call to his flat and arrested him just before 10pm that night for falsely reporting about a bomb attack. A bomb disposal team was sent to Twisted Rooster but the venue was confirmed safe and there was no explosive device or substance to be found. “On 01/31/19 at approximately 4:45 pm, West Melbourne Police responded to the report of a bomb threat at 1220 West New Haven Avenue (Twisted Rooster),” West Melbourne Police Department posted on February 4. They added that the young man admitted deliberately blocking his phone number as the call was made, he also did not deny threatening to blow the venue, but said he had no actual plans to do so.
