WITNESSES: Gay Slurs Preceded Uptown Robbery

A 36-year-old Uptown man was robbed late Sunday night and witnesses report that anti-gay slurs were yelled before the attack.

The victim, who is gay, was battered and robbed of his wallet and iPhone 6 by two men in the 4400 block of Malden around 11:35PM.

Witnesses describe the offenders as two Hispanic men, possibly Puerto Rican, 20 to 25 years of age, standing about 6-feet tall and weighing about 160 pounds.
