This is crazy. Dude literally had his face broken in.
According to CBS Local reports:
Officials and volunteers handed out fliers in Greenwich Village Friday showing a police sketch of a suspect wanted for the brutal attack of a gay couple at a subway stop.
It happened at the West Fourth Street station early Sunday morning after J.P. Masterson and his partner Peter Moore had finished celebrating their 10-year anniversary with dinner and a show.
The couple was waiting on the platform when police said a man approached and asked them if they were gay. When they ignored him, police said he yelled anti-gay slurs and then attacked Masterson.
“He just came at me in two seconds and then he started shoving me towards the tracks,” Masterson said. “He was like, ‘I f***ing hate f***ots.”
Police said the man punched Masterson in the face repeatedly. He said the beating ended when he threw a drink at the suspect’s face, who then fled the station.
“My heart just fell because we were on such a high from the weekend,” Moore said.
Masterson said during the attack, no one on the crowded subway platform offered to help.
“There was 50 or more people and no one said anything, did anything,” he said.
He was taken to the hospital and treated for his injuries, which he said includes multiple fractures to his face, eye socket and nose.
“I couldn’t believe that in this day and age, in the Village which is where I came out and where I felt most accepted, that now I have to be on edge,” Masterson said.
Investigators believe the suspect is a white male about 5-foot-8 in height, weighs around 170 pounds and is in his late 20s. He may also have a thick Polish accent, police said.
The victim is currently waiting to undergo surgery for his injuries.
We hope they catch the attacker soon. That’s crazy that nobody did anything. What’s wrong with the world that people would stand by and watch him get beat down like that?
