Gay Tucson
assault victim afraid to file report

A gay Tucson, Ariz., man who was beaten in an antigay attack in early June has still not filed an official complaint with the police out of fear or retaliation, Tucson's KVOA TV reports. The man was reportedly lured from a gay bar and into a nearby car by three men.

According to a friend, the men pointed a gun at the victim's head and drove him to a local park, where he was beaten, sexually assaulted, and robbed. The victim spent three days in the hospital.

"Since he won't file an official report on this, we don't have an active case," Tucson officer Mark Robinson told the TV station. "However, we have been made aware this occurred." Robinson added that there may be other victims who are afraid to come forward. (The Advocate)
