A gang of four boys and men, aged 16-31, broke into the north London home of Ricky Brown and stabbed him 12 times because they thought he was gay, prosecutors allege in a criminal trial this week. Calling him a “batty man” and accusing him of offering alcohol and drugs in an attempt to young boys into having sex, the suspects allegedly broke into his home at 4am one August morning, though he spotted them approaching and called police, but that didn’t stop them from ransacking hims home, robbing him, and sticking him with a knife. The defendants have all plead not guilty to burglary charges, though it appears no hate crime punishment is being pursued.
