A 42-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested in Denia and charged with hate crimes relating to homophobic attacks on his neighbours. The victims said that the verbal attacks had been going on for some time, but last week called the police after the situation had become unsustainable.
The National Police arrived and found the accused yelling homophobic insults from a balcony of his house. He was in a highly agitated state and continued to shout insults and threats even when confronted by police.
The victims said that he had also cut their internet connection, with there being no reason for any of the man’s actions other than their sexual orientation. A local court ordered the accused to go no nearer than 500 metres to his victims while charges are drawn up.
