SACRAMENTO—

Police in Sacramento are asking for any witnesses of an unprovoked attack in midtown Sacramento to come forward.

The attack happened in the early morning hours of August 17 at a parking lot near 19th and J Streets.

Two people told police that they were walking in the parking lot when they were confronted by a group of five men. The group of men then attacked the two, shouting anti-gay slurs during the assault.

The two were able to get away, but one of them suffered significant facial injuries due to the attack.

Only a vague description of the suspects was given. The group reportedly took off in a light colored, older model sedan.

Sacramento Police note that they have been working with representatives of the city’s LGBT Community Center throughout the case.

Anyone with information is asked to call Sacramento Police at (916) 264-5471.
