Two teenagers have been arrested and charged with a hate crime in connection with an assault on a gay man in Orlando, Fla., last month.
The man was attacked by about 10 people after a fight at the Callahan Community Center in Orlando's Parramore neighborhood, reports local TV station WFTV. The victim, who has asked not to be identified, believes the group wanted "to settle the score with anyone in the neighborhood who happened to be gay," the station reports.
The assailants knocked him to the ground, punched him, and hit him with chairs while yelling insults about him being gay, according to WFTV. He managed to break away and was not seriously injured, but he fears further attacks on himself and his family if his identity becomes known.
The altercation was captured on cell phone video, from which Orlando police identified two suspects, brothers Deandre and Dennis Florence, age 14 and 16, respectively, WFTV reports. They have been arrested and face a variety of charges, including hate-crimes charges, according to the station. Police released the video to the public Friday in hopes of identifying additional suspects.
