Attack Inside Gay Bar Leaves Staff With Fractured Bones

Eagle London

Three people were arrested after shouting homophobic slurs and brutally attacking the staff at a gay bar this week, according to London's Evening Standard.

The attack happened early Monday at the Eagle London, located in the city's Vauxhall district. One of the employees was left with a fractured skull, another with a fractured foot. 

The three attackers — two men and a woman — were reportedly asked to leave the smoking area, which sent them into an angry rash of homophobic slurs, resulting in them being asked to leave altogether. That’s when things turned violent. 

Police called it a “particularly vicious attack,” noting that a “hate crime in any form will not be tolerated.”
