Liquor License Suspended for Bridgeport Bar Where College Students Drank

The state Department of Consumer Protection has suspended the liquor license for a Bridgeport bar where dozens of college students were found drinking.

Police raided Golden Star Café, at 3915 Main St. in Bridgeport, on Tuesday, April 6 hours after police arresting a man suspected of sexually assaulting a 19-year-old Sacred Heart University student he met there.
