A minor arrested for hatred and injuries when hitting a couple: “So you know who’s boss, you fucking fagots”

National Police agents have arrested a minor as the alleged perpetrator of a hate crime and injuries after last Saturday he allegedly hit a couple of the same sex who was walking hand in hand in the vicinity of the Palacio de Congresos de Elche (Alicante ), as reported by the Police in a statement. The Juvenile Prosecutor’s Office agreed to his admission to a reception center for minors.

According to the Police, the minor allegedly broke his nose with a punch and struck the victims when they were walking hand in hand along Filet de Fora street “only because of their homosexual condition.” The couple were with some friends when, suddenly, another group began to “recriminate” their attitude. The alleged aggressor approached them and grabbed one of the victims by the neck with the intention of taking him “in a cocky attitude” towards the people he was with.

His partner tried to stop him by pulling hard on his arms, at which point the alleged assailant became “more violent” and allegedly punched one of them in the face while holding him. The victim began to bleed “profusely” from his nose and continued to beat and kick him further.

Witnesses to the attack called the police and several patrols immediately showed up at the scene. The police crews assured that, upon arrival, they witnessed how the aggressor was still continuing his violent action against the victims, at which point they intervened to separate him from them and detain him.

LGTBI bracelet and keychain

The victims stated at the police station that the alleged aggressor, apparently, identified a bracelet and a keychain that they had visible with the LGTBI flag and that he attacked them solely because of their homosexual condition.

In addition, in their statement, they said they had heard perfectly how, after the attack, while they fled the place when the police patrols arrived, someone shouted at them: “So you know who’s boss, you shitty fags”, words that they could hear so much like some of the people who accompanied them.

The National Police continues its investigation to determine if there is any other participant in the aggression suffered by the victims. The 17-year-old detainee, of Spanish nationality, and with a previous record, was admitted to the Alicante Reception Center for Minors as ordered by the Juvenile Prosecutor’s Office.
