Campus police at Illinois State University are investigating a beating that the victim claims was an anti-gay hate crime. The victim, who is openly gay, says he was walking home early Saturday after a party when he was confronted by a group of African-American males. He says one of them knocked a phone out of the victim’s hand, and then they all began beating him and calling him gay slurs. The student was treated for injuries including a fractured jaw and broken teeth. Police have made no arrests, and are looking for evidence to corroborate the victim’s story.
