Detroit man
beaten and left paralyzed after possible hate crime

Andrew Anthos, 72, was violently attacked while riding a city bus in Detroit on February 13 and is now paralyzed from the neck down, reports WDIV in Detroit.

His family says the attack was a hate crime and that he was beaten after another male passenger asked him if he was gay. Anthos was riding the bus back to his home at Detroit's Windsor Tower apartments. According to his niece Athena Fedenis, the male passenger followed Anthos off the bus and beat him with a pipe in front of his apartment.

The Northwestern district of the Detroit Police Department is handling the investigation. Officers have not made any arrests in connection with the case.

Anthos is currently at Detroit Receiving Hospital and is paralyzed and barely able to speak above a whisper, his family says. (The Advocate)
