Man has his back broken as a result of hate crime attack


The attack took place in the early hours of July 8, following London’s Pride celebrations the day before. The man, age 49, planned to catch a buys and go home when the incident occurred. Police say he was struck in the back and fell to the ground before they took his minor possessions, including mobile phone. The incident is being treated as a hate crime “due to offensive language heard by the victim”, according to the police statement. The victim received medical treatment when he reached Stratford Underground Station, where he was given medical treatment by officers. He was then taken to hospital where he was found to have suffered a broken back. The man continues to receive treatment, no arrests have been made though far. The Met explained: “Detectives have carried out extensive CCTV enquiries to identify the suspect(s). They would like to hear anyone who witnessed the assault which happened following Pride in London. The area would have been busy at the time. Officers would also like to speak with anyone who helped him off the tube at Stratford.”
