Texas student Lance Reyna claims that a knife-wielding assailant used anti-gay slurs, attacked and then robbed him in a restroom at Houston Community College earlier this week.
Houston's Fox 26 reports:
“Iwas about to say, ‘Okay, cut it out, Brandon,’ or whoever it was likeone of my friends,” says Reyna. “Then all of a sudden he put a razor tomy neck.”
Reyna remembers panicking as the stranger warned him to be quiet and cooperate.
“Iwas scared, I really was scared. He had the blade up there and he kindof made little strokes like he was going to cut me. And I'm just like,well, let me tuck my chin in so that way I don't bleed to death.”
LanceReyna says he was punched and kicked as he struggled to the floor. Thenthe unidentified man ripped the wallet from his pocket and fled.
Reyna is convinced he was targeted because he is transgender, and gay.
