A man inside Jake's on Fourth reported being punched in the face by another man who called him a slur commonly used to disparage another person's sexual orientation, according to an Olympia police report.
The 32-year-old man reported to police that "he believes he was punched in the face because he is gay, and that the suspect was yelling homophobic remarks," the police report states.
The attack occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, April 5 at Jake's on Fourth, a nightclub in the heart of downtown Olympia.
The 32-year-old said he was punched in the face a single time by a black male, wearing a red hat, and was approximately five-feet tall. The man said he believes the suspect is in the military. The man was bleeding from the face when police interviewed him, but he declined medical attention.
No one has been arrested in connection with the incident. Anyone with information that can help police solve the crime is encouraged to call the Olympia Police Department at 36-753-8300.
