Plainville police have issued a warrant on Wednesday for a Plainville man identified as Anthony Sidoti, 24, on charges of assault, reckless endangerment, and breach of peace.
According to officers, police were dispatched to a report of an assault on an unnamed victim at Zen’s Bar located on 317 Farmington Avenue in Plainville. Upon arrival, police noticed the victim had head trauma to the left rear side of his head and face and was bleeding. The unnamed victim claimed that he was called over by several men wearing “Outlaw” motorcycle “cuts,” which the officers recognized to be leather vests of a motorcycle club.
Police have confirmed that the victim sustained multiple injuries, but is in stable condition.
The victim went on to say that the men attacked him for no reason and he didn’t retaliate, then the attackers fled before the arrival of the police.
Officers conducted a search, but were unable to find any of the alleged attackers.
Police said they met with a confidential informant who revealed the identity of the main attacker was Sidoti. The informant also said that the victim was heavily intoxicated, behaving belligerently, and instigating a fight with Sidoti. It was then when Sidoti allegedly punched the victim on the side of the head. The confidential informant also claimed that he knew Sidoti was a member of a biker gang, “Outlaws MC” and had illegally trafficked firearms.
Officers reviewed security footage obtained from Zen Bar of the event, which were supported by the claims of the victim and the confidential informant where Sidoti and the group attacked the victim.
Sidoti remains at large. Police ask that if they see Sidoti to contact the police.
