Cops are searching for four men who broke into this gay man’s house and injected him with an unknown substance before brutally attacking him and drawing a swastika on his forehead.
Officers are searching for the four suspects who followed the unnamed 48-year-old man home before attacking him in the Brazilian municipality of Itaguara on the night of Tuesday, 13th July.
The victim told the police that one of the men had a swastika tattooed on his neck.
The four men had previously approached the man in the centre of Itaguara on Thursday, 8th July. They allegedly called him a “fat and gay pig”, causing him to run next to a police car.
On the night of the crime, the suspects followed the man back home and bundled into his house when he opened his front door.
They then stabbed him in the neck with a syringe and injected him with an unknown substance before brutally beating him.
He fainted and when he came to, he felt pain in his back and close to his anus, and he saw blood on the floor.
He also realised the four men, who he described as white-skinned and with light-coloured eyes, wrote “next time, you die” on his chest and drew a swastika on his forehead.
After he called for help, paramedics arrived on the scene and took him to hospital, from where he has since been discharged.
The police are investigating the crime and are currently trying to identify and locate the suspects.
Though LGBT rights in Brazil are amongst the most advanced in the world, Brazil is also reported to have the highest LGBT murder rate in the world.
