Police in Orlando, Florida are searching for three male suspects after a woman was attacked and brutally raped in a possible hate crime Sunday night, while walking home from the LGBT night club “Revolution.”
Orlando Police say the rape occurred early Sunday morning at approximately 1:00 AM after the victim had exited the popular downtown club and proceeded to walk home by herself. She was approached by three men in a silver vehicle who yelled sexual comments, including “lesbian” and “dyke,” at the woman before the attack.
The three men exited the vehicle and two of them pushed her to the ground, took off her underwear and one of them raped her, according to Orlando police.
