Salt Lake City Gay Man Records Own Assault, Help Find The Homophobic Bastard Who Bashed Him – VIDEO

Sal Trejo, a gay man from Salt Lake City, Utah posted an 8 second clip of himself being assaulted on Twitter Sunday night and SLC police are asking the public for help identifying a man who hit him and then pulled a knife after asking him if he was gay.

The assault took place downtown and the video starts with the suspect asking “Are you gay though?”

Trejo responds, “Oh, I am.”

“Oh, then you are gay.”

“Yeah, but…”

That’s when the man punches him.

Trejo also posted a statement that said after the assault, the man pulled a knife, yelled anti-gay slurs and eventually ran to a car.

Salt Lake City police are investigating and asking for the identity and any information on the assault.

Back2Stonewall asks the LGBT community even if you are not from the SLC area to share this post in the hopes that we can identify this dangerous individual via social media.
