Italy: Italian teen ‘gay-bashing’ gang arrested after two men are beaten up

Eight Italian teenagers have been arrested for allegedly beating up two gay men and stealing from them in an apparent homophobic attack in Milan. The boys are aged between 15 and 19-years-old. They were arrested after an incident that occurred outside a nightclub in January.

“Before beating us and stealing from us, they called us ‘froci’ [faggots],” the two victims told police. The men were left with several injuries including a broken nose and further head injuries.

“They kept beating me up, even after I was bleeding on the ground,” one of the victims said. After the arrests, one of the assaulted men named Michele said: “Now they can’t hurt anyone else. If they are really guilty I am happy they have been caught.” Read more via Pink News
