Luiz Jonas, a young Brazilian 22-year-old resident of La Puebla de Guzmán (Huelva), has denounced to the Civil Guard the alleged homophobic aggression suffered by a co-worker.
From “they didn’t know he was gay” to “faggot says a lot”: the myths of hate crimes that Samuel’s case has revealed.
According to the complaint, he works in a beach bar in the nearby town of Sanlúcar de Guadiana, where a co-worker, the last to arrive at the company, would have gone from making derogatory comments to his sexual orientation to assault him.
During an argument that went to more, and lying already on the ground, he received, according to the complaint, a punch and several kicks between expressions like “faggot shit”, “if you are not a man” or “these are the things that happen by hiring faggots like these”.
According to the complaint, a misunderstanding about a comment to him by his partner caused his partner to confront him directly, punching him in the eye, nose, mouth and chest, until he was separated by another colleague.
It was the young man’s partner who argued with the alleged aggressor, and when trying to separate them was when the aggression towards him would have occurred. The young man claims that the alleged aggressor is a new co-worker, who since his arrival has been making all kinds of homophobic comments towards the complainant and his partner, to different workers of the establishment, and even to the manager of the premises. The Civil Guard is already investigating the facts.
The assaulted was treated in the emergency department of the Juan Ramón Jiménez Hospital in Huelva city, where the doctors found “a wound in the nasal region with ecchymosis (subcutaneous lesion characterized by deposits of extravasated blood under the intact skin) in the region of the nose and the nose.Right shoulder and right cheekbone.
