Another person has been injured in an attack in the gayborhood, according to posts on Facebook overnight.
Geoffrey Hubbard, a server at Cedar Springs Tap House, is in Baylor Hospital in Dallas after being beaten during an attempted robbery at the intersection of Knight and Rawlins streets.
“Just a casual stroll a few blocks over to a friend’s house and I get smacked in the head by some guy attempting to mug me,” Hubbard said on Facebook, posting a photo of himself with a bloody face and bandages wrapped around his head.
Hubbard said he was able to crawl under a nearby car to prevent his assailants from taking his money.
This attack mimics one that occurred on Nov. 1. Tito Gonzalez was walking home from his job at Quesa when he noticed a man following him. He tried to cross the street, but someone approached from that side. The two men trapped him and brutally attacked.
In this attack, one man approached from in front of him while another attacked him on the head from behind.
This is at least the 12th reported attack on a gay man in Oak Lawn since Sept. 20. At least three other attacks have taken place that Dallas Voice has heard of that may not have been reported to police.
