Hamilton Hate Crime Update

A few days ago I posted regarding a horrible incident that happened to a friend of mine.. Thankfully (though its hard to be “thankful” for anything when these sorts of things happen), there have been some developments:

Says queerty:


Hamilton, Canada coppers caught a break yesterday when 24-year old Earl Robinson turned himself in for one of last weekend’s two anti-gay attacks.

An unidentified 23-year old gay man says three men approached him early Sunday morning, hurled some homophobic epithets and proceeded to beat him. Robinson says he’s one of those men. Police later arrested 23-year old Josh Pfau. The third assailant remains at large.

Meanwhile, officials are still looking into the second apparent attack.
