Suspect Arrested for Arson Attack at Brooklyn LGBTQ Club –

A man accused of setting a Brooklyn nightclub ablaze earlier this month has been arrested by U.S. Marshals.

The Rash nightclub has only been operating in Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood since October of last year. The venue had become a preferred spot among the community’s LGBTQ+ clubbers. But on April 3rd, Rash sustained a fire that reportedly left the property vastly unsalvageable. 

Now, 24-year-old John Lhota has been identified by security footage and charged with arson. NYC Mayor Eric Adams confirmed the arrest in a statement on Twitter.
