Tucson police are investigating an attack on a man who was lured out of a gay bar and jumped by several men. No arrests have been made in the August 27 incident, but police are investigating it as a hate crime.
According to a Tucson police report, a man approached a 37-year-old patron in a bar and began talking with him. They shared a pitcher of beer, and then the man asked the patron to go to his nearby house. When the patron walked down the street with the man, four men approached the patron and attacked him, police said. The victim fought back and ran to the bar. He suffered a broken arm and scrapes and cuts, police said.
"The victim believes this is because he was gay, and there is that possibility," said Det. Tim Rupel.
