Man Beaten in Anti-Gay Assault Outside California Bowling Alley


Seth Parker was beaten outside of a Sacramento-area bowling alley, CBS13 reports:

Doctors told Seth Park he will need corrective surgery for four fractures around an eye and damaged nerves in his face after two men allegedly attacked him in a bowling alley parking lot. The attack was launched after he tried to defend his two female friends from the suspects, who tried to aggressively proposition them, Parker said.

The man who first struck him began shouting gay slurs after the attack. “He repeatedly said that over and over and over, like a ridiculous amount of repetition,” Parker said.

The Elk Grove Police Department has begun an investigation and the men involved could face felony assault charges though they have not yet classified it a hate crime.
