Boston police investigate phone threats to 2 gay bars

BOSTON (AP) — Police are investigating threatening phone calls made to two bars in Boston that cater to a largely gay clientele.

The calls came in at about the same time on consecutive nights.

A police spokesman said the first call was answered by an employee at dbar at about 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Another call targeted the Alley Bar at about the same time Saturday night.

Police Commissioner William Gross told the Boston Herald that his department doesn't "take any threats lightly."

He says everybody should be able to enjoy a night out peacefully.

Police did not say whether the incidents were linked and didn't release any further information about the nature of the threats.
