A worker at a gay bar in England was attacked by three people shouting homophobic abuse and left with a fractured skull.
Three people have been arrested in connection with an attack at the Eagle London this past Sunday night.
Two men, ages 42 and 30, and a woman, age 20, were asked to leave the bar’s smoking area. That’s when they started shouting anti-gay slurs at bar workers, and they were told to leave the bar.
They then became violent and attacked workers at the bar, leaving one with a fractured skull and another with a broken foot.
Police were called in at 1:50 a.m. and they arrested the three attackers.
“This was a particularly vicious attack which stemmed from a minor incident and involved the use of homophobic language,” said Detective Constable Phill Govett.
“Hate crime in any form will not be tolerated by police and we will take all possible action to bring perpetrators of these offenses to justice.”
