The victim of a violent sexual attack at the hands of a sadistic gay couple he met on Grindr is finally breaking his silence.
Speaking anonymously with the Northhampton Chronicle, the middle-aged male explained that he was lured to a small house in the quiet suburb of Little Billing located in eastern Northampton in England last July by two men he met on the hookup app.
What happened next was truly a nightmare.

The men, 20-year-olds Jordan Bridge-Simmons and Tyrone Platt, were waiting for the victim naked. When he arrived at their house, they led him into a darkened bedroom, blocked the exit and restrained him. Then they stole his phone and proceeded to beat him mercilessly.
“I have never in my life hit anyone and I’d never been hit,” the man, a former member of the air force, recalled. “I was so frightened. I can’t put into words how terrified I was.”
He was beaten nonstop for an entire hour and suffered a bruised diaphragm as a result.
But it gets worse.

Halfway through the assault, the assailants brought out two large machetes and began waving them in the air.
“When they brought the knives out in the dark you could hear them scraping them together,” the man said. “I thought I was going to be killed, I really did.”
That’s when victim snapped into survival mode.
“You see these programs about victims of rape and assault where they say try to remember as much as you can,” he said, “and that’s all I was fixated on. I was taking what they were giving to me and trying to remember every step of the way.”

After the assailants had finished terrorizing their victim, they got dressed then led him from the bedroom to the top of a staircase. They kicked his legs out from under him, sending him tumbling downward. Then, ordering him back up, he was taken to a nearby ATM, where he was made to withdraw £300 (approx. $425 U.S.) before he was released from their captivity.
“I don’t hate them because hate is a strong thing,” the victim said. “I kind of feel sorry for them, really.” But, he added, “Nobody deserves to be robbed and beaten up like that.”
Recorder Geoffrey Kelly said the pair targeted gay men who were middle-aged or older because they believed the men would be too embarrassed by the suggestive Grindr messages to report the robbery.
Both Bridge-Simmons and Platt were sentenced this week to six years each in prison for the attack.

Grindr stories keep getting creepier with each passing month…
I also don’t believe hate is healthy but I’d do everything I could to make sure they’d pay for the rest of their lives.
So no Mike Dozer sentence here, 6 years each??????? 20 thanks.
@scotshot: Oh fuck yeah. Something like this.
“Oh fuck yeah”. True dat!

What they dont realize is that gay men today have no shame
Glad to be celibate.
Why no photos of these brutal monsters? They should get more than six years, too. They could have killed this man!
@Damon Strong: I’m just glad I never leave the house. Imagine all the crazy shit that could happen to me.
Nobody should be surprised by this. I’m sorry it happened to the guy but this is why it’s best to meet in a public place first.
That is why it’s always good to meet people in public, tell someone else where you are going and/or update them with a text, etc. etc. Unfortunately, not everyone on these apps is trustworthy.
Unfortunately, I think there may b a correlation between psychopathy and homosexuality. I’ve read a bit about serial killers and a good proportion were gay/bi/transgender etc. Either that, or the gay community provides easy victims, giving the anonymity that many seek for hook-ups….the Jeffery Dahmer effect
@Poncho Sanchez: There aren’t enough serial killers for you to a statistically relevant make your statement. Leave the thinking to the experts.
@Michael Paul: It`s Europe we are not into sending everyone for life to prison. But you are right, sometimes the verdicts are way to soft.
