"The words AIDS, SNITCH and GET OUT were written, along with gay slurs. "I was singled out and targeted because I was a homosexual," said the victim. And he’s hiding his identity out of fear. "I feel that my safety is at risk and if my face is shown I will be attacked or I will have to constantly be looking over my shoulder," said the victim.
Lowell police have not yet called it a hate crime, but this victim says there’s no question it was. "The word “hate” was actually used," said the victim.
The victim appears to be Black, but apparently no racial epithets were used. There have been no arrests so far.
