Young man assaulted with sickle blows in homophobic attack in Rio

A young man was beaten with scythe blows in the early hours of Thursday (28), in São Gonçalo. According to the 19-year-old drag queen, he was not dressed for his character and said he was leaving a diner with a friend in the square of the Trindade neighborhood when there was a confusion after the match between Flamengo and Cruzeiro. The victim told him that he got up to leave and a man started cursing him.

“Then he began to quarrel with my friend, and then another came and threw a bottle of beer at my head. I fainted, and when I woke up there was a man on top of me with a sickle and struck my head. “I fainted again, and a friend came in to get me out of there,” said the young man.

The young man was on the scene in a meeting with a friend to discuss details of a Miss Gay contest, which will be held in Niteroi.

The victim, who will file the case at the police station on Saturday (30), said that she was treated at a health center in São Gonçalo, where she had more than 40 points on her head, shoulder and arms.
