Fox5 in Las Vegas is reporting that a gay couple in Las Vegas has been brutally attacked in an incident that sent them both to the hospital with life-threatening injuries:
Charles was hit in the head. He was released Friday morning. On the phone, Vincent told FOX5 he was released from University Medical Center on Friday night. But he is still in a lot of pain. He has two broken ribs and a punctured lung.
Thursday night, Charles picked up Vincent from work at Walmart. Little did they know two people were following them home.
When they got out of the car in front of their apartment, “I was about to unlock the door, the next thing I hear, he’s calling my name,” Charles said. “I come back, I see my boyfriend fighting with the guy.”
The fight spilled over onto their front porch, where they knocked over a glass table.
“There was a lot of glass on the floor so the guy came around,” Charles said. “He picked up the glass. I was like, ‘Don’t do that.’ And he started stabbing my boyfriend in the back. The guy was kicking him in his ribs.”
According to him, an employee of Walmart that he works with, followed him and his boyfriend back home.
“It was all about gay bashing,” Charles told Fox5. “The guy came up to my boyfriend’s job, calling him an abomination, calling him fag.”
