Two men have been attacked with bottles and had homophobic abuse shouted at them in Birmingham, police have said. Rob and Patrick, in their 30s, were outside the Missing Bar in the city’s Gay Village on Sunday. West Midlands Police said the abuse came from a group of four men in a black SUV, who then got out and assaulted the victims. Patrick was knocked unconscious in the attack and his partner said it was “shocking that would happen in 2021”. Rob said he and Patrick, from Bicester, Oxfordshire, had been at a friend’s housewarming party and decided towards the end of the night to go dancing in the Gay Village. As they left Missing Bar he said he saw the men with balloons in the car and jokingly asked them if it was their birthday.
