A Brooklyn man was attacked by a man wielding a hammer

Brooklyn Man Attacked by Anti-Gay Bigot With Hammer

Despite the progress America has made, equality and non-discrimatory ways of thinking fail to permeate the mental space of many. This is evident in the recent attack of a Brooklyn man who was the victim of a hate crime that took place on Monday morning.

The attack was caught on tape, and the assailant was described as a black man with facial hair, wearing Timberland boots and a brown hoody. The 33-year-old victim said the attack happened as he was walking into his apartment building on Washington Avenue and Empire Boulevard in Brooklyn. Apparently, the suspect followed him and proceeded to attack him with a hammer while screaming anti-gay slurs. The victim received stitches and was discharged from the hospital later that day.
