Prude Death Investigation

Before large brawl, deputies were called to Henrietta bar 12 times in 2018

Local News

Sunday was far from the first time deputies have been called to Schramrock’s — the Henrietta bar that was the site of a large brawl this weekend.

Firefighters were called to the bar around 1 a.m. Sunday morning for a report of the bar being overcrowded. In turn, firefighters called the sheriff’s office for help with a large, unruly crowd that eventually surrounded the truck.

As deputies worked to disperse the large crowd, additional calls came in for three men who were stabbed during the fight who were at Strong Memorial Hospital. Deputies say those victims aren’t cooperating with the investigation.

MCSO is releasing the names of the three victims stabbed during altercations at the pub. The names of the victims are as follows: Michael Mathis Jr., 21, Raeshon Patterson, 20, Raekwon Green, 22, all from Rochester.

In a release Sunday, deputies said the bar and promoter failed to keep customers safe.

Speaking Monday, Captain Paul DeLella said the sheriff’s office investigation as continuing and no arrests had been made at this time. But, the department is meeting with the town on the steps moving forward — and the Liquor Authority was investigating the incident.

Captain DeLella says, “[The firefighters] at some point felt they were in danger… It’s my understanding that no one was actively going after the firemen. I think unfortunately, where they were parked, as the people came out of the establishment, they were kind of in the wrong place at the wrong time… They were more or less surrounded by the crowd that was acting unruly.”

Deputies say this is far from the first problem at the bar. In 2018, deputies were called to the bar 12 times for fights or drunk patrons causing problems. This year, the bar has already had four other calls for problems.

When asked if the bar is a problem spot, Captain DeLella said, “For us, it’s above the norm [for calls].”
