A 22-year-old man was attacked in Amsterdam West on New Year's Day by a group of men. They called him a "cancer faggot" and left him injured and with two broken teeth.
The victim was on his way to his bike after celebrating New Year's Eve at a friend's house in West. It was around 6 a.m. and the bike was parked near to the club De School. "While I was busy with my bike's chain, I heard a group of people behind shouting at me," the victim told Het Parool through his uncle, "They insulted me for being a faggot and then beat me up."
