NBC 4: Alleged Anti-Gay Bias Attack Saturday
NBC 4 interviews a man who says he was attacked after attending the H Street Festival with friends. The man was walking down H Street with a friend when a group of men followed them, and one punched him in the face. The group then laughed, and used anti-gay slurs. The victim did not file a police report Saturday, and says he now regrets not doing so. Officers from MPD did respond to the scene.
I received a phone call from a credible source who says he saw what happened. My source claims that the alleged victim was not attacked, but rather tripped and fell. My source says the guy appeared intoxicated. According to my source, after the man fell, someone offered him a towel to clean up, and he stumbled off into an alley. An MPD officer followed the man into the alley.
Did you witness this event? It occurred at 10th and H Street. If you saw something, please email me directly at elise.bernard[at]gmail.com.
