Special Needs Gay Man Beaten, Robbed After Having Sex With Man He Met Online
A 25-year-old special needs man was brutally beaten and robbed at gunpoint after inviting a man into his home for sex. After celebrating his birthday on July 3, Henry Hoskins logged onto the Interactive Male website where he began chatting with a man who goes by the name "Tee." Henry invited the man over to his home and "Tee" arrived just after midnight. After they had sex, Henry says "Tee" attacked him. "He basically grabbed my neck and took the gun and started beating me." Henry says the attacker pistol whipped him and choked him until he was unconscious. When Henry came to, he noticed his cell phone, keys and wallet were gone. He was also bleeding from the head. He was taken to the hospital, where he received 42 staples in his head. The attacker -- described as a dark-skinned black man between 21 and 29 years old, 5 feet 7 to 5 feet 9 inches tall, with an average build and a star on the right side of his face -- is still on the loose.
