The men were left with several injuries including a broken nose and further head injuries. “They kept beating me up, even after I was bleeding on the ground,” one of the victims said. After the arrests, one of the assaulted men named Michele said: “Now they can’t hurt anyone else. If they are really guilty I am happy they have been caught.” A third man, a friend of the victims, managed to escape and called the emergency services. “The prime motive was to offend and hurt, it was clearly a homophobic aggression,” he said.
