Just after midnight on October 6, 2013, Bridgewater police officers were called to the Broad Street Pub, where a man had been stabbed nine times on various parts of his body.

 

According to the Brockton Enterprise, 21-year old Jacob Klapman of Abington was attacked outside the Broad Street Pub. Three Brockton men were arrested at a traffic stop in Whitman shortly after the stabbing occurred.

Police were able to apprehend the suspects because of descriptions from witnesses at the scene.

James Chalmers, 22, Jason Hodo, 23 and Nicholas Hodo, 44, were charged with attempted murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and aggravated assault and battery.

According to the Taunton Gazette, the three suspects pleaded not guilty in Brockton District Court. The Brockton men are scheduled to appear in court again on November 4.

“There’s no question that this incident is a concern,” said Bridgewater State University Police Chief David Tillinghast. “Students frequent the establishment and probably witnessed this.”

According to the Brockton Enterprise, it is possible this incident is gang related.

When asked if he had any advice for students going out at night, Tillinghast said, “I’m an advocate for situational awareness. When you go out, go out with your friends.”

Tillinghast also mentioned many people see Bridgewater as a sleepy community, but it is important to be aware of one’s surroundings at all times.

Tillinghast urges students to report any suspicious activity to the police right away.
