EDMOND, Okla. (KFOR) -- Edmond realtor Christian Council says he was beaten unconscious early Saturday morning by two people yelling homophobic slurs.
Council said he and a friend were heading home when a car parked in the middle of the road was blocking his space. He had to honk his horn twice before they finally moved and he was able to get to his spot.
“My friend and I got out of my car. They were waiting behind my car, and when they saw us and saw what we looked like,” Council told News 4. “They said ‘Oh are you two a couple of -- ‘ and they used a gay slur.”
“Assaulted him, beat him up, left him laying on the ground,” Oklahoma Police Msgt. Gary Knight said. “When officers arrived he was still on the ground, all of the involved parties were still there.”
Council says the couple was yelling slurs during the entire attack.
The two suspects, identified as Amery Dickerson and Bennett Stone, were arrested for misdemeanor assault and battery, but were released without being booked into the county jail.
