Dec 12, 2007 Quickie Link: Suspects Identified in Rio Teen's Gay Bashing
By vanrozenheim

(Brazil) - Three suspects in the beating of a Gay teen in Rio De Janeiro have been identified through phone calls, according to local media reports. Police are also reviewing surveillance video footage from the Niterói neighborhood where the teen was attacked. Student Ferrucio Silvestro was leaving a Gay club in Niterói on Nov. 30 when three youths between 18 and 25 years old chased him shouting, "We do not want 'viados' around here." "Viados" is an anti-Gay slur much like "faggot" in English. Ferrucio ran 400 meters and hid in a gas station bathroom but was found and beaten by the three attackers.
