Midtown pedestrian subjected to gay slurs, baseball bat striking

A man was hit with a baseball bat and called gay slurs last night in midtown.

Sacramento police are investigating the assault that happened about 10:15 p.m. at 20th and D streets. Police said a man in his 40s was walking home when he was approached by a young man.

The man in his twenties made derogatory homosexual comments toward the older man. Then, another young man also made anti-gay comments while striking the older man in the lower part of his body with a bat.

The first man who made the gay comments was described as black, heavy-set, 24-28 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a dark green, t-shirt and blue jeans.

The man wielding the baseball bat was described as a white, 28-34 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark-colored t-shirt and pants.
