Men Beat Tourist While Calling Him "Faggot"
According to Police Captain Denis O'Leary, the 52-year-old man, whose sexual orientation is unknown, was walking at Market and Sanchez streets when three men approached him and started beating him with a baseball bat.
"The suspects were heard to yell 'Fuck you, faggot,'" O'Leary tells us.
The three suspects hit the man four times with the bat before one of them took the victim's keys. The victim did not call police to report the beating until the next morning. Police met with him and saw his bruises. They are investigating it as a hate crime.
The three suspects were described as white men in their teens, wearing dark clothing.
