The victim, who’s in his 20s, said that he went to a train station at 11 p.m. when a group of people started shouting anti-gay insults at him. Afraid, he walked to a bus stop to get away from them, but two men from the group followed him and beat him.

They are asking anyone with information about the attack to call the police on 101, quoting 44210145908, or Crimestoppers at 0800 555 111.
