A group of thugs in Seattle allegedly stole a 16-year-old boy’s cellphone and text messaged his mother “I’m gay.”

The boy was waiting for a bus around 4 p.m. last Tuesday, when he was suddenly punched in the face.

He says four men attacked him and when he fought back he dropped his phone and backpack. He suffered a cut to his face and injuries to a tooth.

When someone yelled at the boys to break it up, the thugs took the victim’s phone and bag with them.

When he arrived home the teen’s mother said she had received a text from him that read: “I’m gay, you know that.”

The teen told police he thought he recognized a former classmate among the robbers, KOMO reported. He described the suspect as a 16-year-old Hispanic male, about 5-foot-8 with a medium build, short black hair and a lip ring.

He reportedly did not recognize the other three suspects.
