Phone Date Turns Violent In Philly

Gay Man Taken Down By Trick

Millions of gay men turn to the Internet and sex lines to get their kicks. All too often, however, these casual encounters turn violent, as happened recently in Philadelphia, where a man found himself on the receiving end of an abusive sexual predator.

The unidentified man called an area sex line and “detailed his desire for a homosexual encounter”, according to The Inquirer. A not-so-gentleman caller returned his call, set up a meeting and then robbed him.

Detective Michael Irey explains:

The suspect sits down and the victim provides him with oral sex, but it wasn’t completed before everything stopped when the suspect hit him. The victim goes down to the ground and looks up and this guy has a hammer.

The attacker then forced the man to withdraw $200 from the ATM and fled on foot.

Meanwhile, the desperate victim fled to the hospital, where doctors wired his jaw shut and inserted a titanium plate into his face to keep it all together.

Police are now looking for the man pictured above. If anyone has information on this alleged bruiser, please call the Nether Providence Township Police at 610-892-2875.
