SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Cops say 21-year-old Edgardo Hernandez is a violent guy.
They say back in June, he was leaving a bar in Springfield’s Entertainment District and had a confrontation with a 23-year old.
“Police officers observed him standing on top of the victim and kicking him repeatedly to the point he was knocked out,” explained Springfield Police Sergeant John Delaney.
When cops went to arrest Hernandez he fought with them too.
“The officers had to use mace on the crowd to calm them down,” added Delaney.
Edgardo Hernandez was arrested but he didn’t show for his court date, so he’s now on Springfield’s wanted list.
Police say incidents like that are why the city is cutting off entertainment at some bars an hour earlier.
“We want to make sure people can come downtown and enjoy and we want to stop violence like this from happening. So we need to get Edgardo Hernandez under arrest,” said Delaney.
So keep your eyes open in case you cross paths with this wanted criminal. Your tip could land him behind bars.
