Surveillance video clips released by the police show a man grabbing another man’s shirt and throwing it to the ground, then hitting it. Later clips show two other men joining the attacker, one of them grabbing a trash can, while the beaten man starts to stand up.
It is not clear if it is Fresnada or the younger man, who refused medical attention, police said.
The attackers took $ 1 of the men and fled, police said.
No contact information could be found immediately for the Fresnada family.
Police posted a video of the attack on Tuesday with the hope that someone could identify Fresnada’s attackers. Cáceres said he did not believe the attack was a hate crime, and said the attackers did not shout homophobic insults.
When the ambulance arrived, Fresnada was conscious, but Cáceres said the brutally beaten man could not remember his name. Cáceres refused medical treatment and said police would not let him join his partner in the ambulance.
