The guy was a victim of a street crime, who happens to be a homosexual. It appears that everyone involved didn't even know he is a homosexual.
Or is he trying to suggest that the fact he is a homosexual is something everyone should be able to "tell" and thus render him immune and invulnerable to any misfortune that might befall one in life?

So, you have a different explanation why he was attacked. Pray, let us all benefit from your omniscience.

"It was passed word to word that there had been trouble in the city with some skinheads attacking gay men. Blasius notes that the man who attacked him made no attempt to grab his wallet even when he was lying down....As international gay-rights activist Doug Ireland reported in New Yorks Gay City News, Grupo Gay de Bahia, a local gay-rights organization, has estimated that there were at least 250 gay-related murders in 2010. Between 1980 and 2009, at least 3,100 gay men (and lesbians) were murdered because of their sexual orientation."
