Man dressed as gladiator allegedly involved in fight in downtown Hoboken

HOBOKEN AND BEYOND — When it’s getting close to Halloween in Hoboken, maybe some people take their costumes a little too seriously. On Oct. 29 at approximately 2 a.m., police met with a bleeding 25-year-old man who alleged that he was assaulted inside a bar on First Street by a man who witnesses told police was dressed as a gladiator.
The alleged victim said he was struck with a pint glass on the left side of his face, according to a police report, and he was bleeding from the head. The gladiator fled from the scene before police were able to intervene, the report said.
The suspect is described by police only as a Hispanic male wearing a gladiator costume. Police are investigating. – Ray Smith
