CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
A man is recovering from a vicious attack, and he says he was jumped because he is gay.
Jared Fox tells 19 Action News he was attacked by a large group as he walked to a club at West 92nd and Detroit in Cleveland.
It happened Saturday evening around Midnight. Fox says he was stomped and kicked and he ended up with an eye swollen shut, a ruptured eardrum and other injuries.
Fox says the crowd specifically shouted slurs at him since the bar he was headed to is known for attracting gays.
Cleveland First District Detectives are investigating.
