“Dear PoPville,

Found this flyer on my car and in my mailbox. In my eight years on U Street, this is a first. Kudos to MPD. Hope they find those a**holes. We love our LGBTQ neighbors.”

Ed. Note: I’ve seen these flyers distributed after homicides but this is the first one I’ve seen for an assault too.

Yesterday MPD released video of suspects assaulting two men on U Street while they “yelled homophobic slurs.”

A gofundme page has also been launched for the victims, which has raised over $11,000 in less than a day. Wishing both the victims a speedy recovery and hoping the reward offered expedites the capture of the assailants.
