A New York City man, who was the victim of an apparent gay-bashing attack, has posted pictures of himself on Facebook showing the brutal injuries he sustained during the attack.

 

According to a report in the New York Daily News, 26-year-old Damian Furtch and a friend were at a McDonald's early Sunday morning when two men started harassing them. When they left the restaurant, Furtch said the men viciously beat him while using anti-gay slurs. His friend was not hurt.

Furtch went on Facebook, posting the photos of his two black eyes. The image has the caption "Four Stitches, Thanks Bitches!"

I thought I was safe in the city I loved but apparently wearing fluorescent colored clothing and pink shoelaces really bother some f-----g a--holes to blind side me and hit me.

The News reports Furtch was spotted at a police station on Tuesday. Police are still looking for the attackers.

Lawrence Page, who owns the restaurant where Furtch works, described the six-foot, four-inch young man as a "gentle giant." He said he just moved to New York from California.

Page said of the aspiring actor/model, "I took a liking to the kid quick."
