Anti-Gay Slurs Precede Baseball Bat Beating

Investigators are looking into a possible hate crime that happened around 10:30 Sunday night on the corner of 20th and D streets in Midtown. Two men, armed with a baseball bat, first yelled derogatory anti-gay slurs at a man in his 40′s and then struck him in the knees with the bat. Neighbors tell FOX40 they didn’t hear anything, but are outraged at the attack.
