Details remain sketchy, but the Atlanta Police Department is reporting that a gay bashing took place on Sunday in Midtown.
From Southern Voice:
A gay man was attacked Sunday night after leaving Blake’s on the Park, according to the Atlanta Police Department.
Details remain unclear, according to LGBT liaison Officer Dani Lee Harris, who is following the case. It appears the young man was attacked near 10th Street and Juniper Avenue in the heart of Midtown.
The victim reportedly suffered broken teeth, a broken nose, and required several stitches.
Scott Horton, a friend of the victim, said the victim told him the incident occurred around 10 p.m. near the gates of the Tuscany condominiums. The condos are located at 955 Juniper St.
After leaving Blake’s, the victim was walking to MARTA when two men called him over, Horton said. The men allegedly asked the victim if he is gay, then beat him after he responded that he is.
