Boston Police report they are looking for a man and a woman for a stabbing at F Street and West Broadway in South Boston around 10:45 p.m. on Dec. 18.

Their victim was taken to a local hospital with injuries considered life threatening.

If they look familiar, contact detectives at 617-343-4742 or the anonymous tip line by calling 800-494-TIPS or by texting TIP to CRIME (27463).

Anthony Crumbley, 25, reports he was the victim, that he was attacked because he is gay and that he was in a coma for four days. He wrote yesterday he remains in the ICU - and now has to figure out how to care for not just himself, but for his 12-year-old sister, for whom he is her legal guardian.

I just don't know how I'm going to make ends meet now with this gained disability from my attackers, I'm now left with a unfunctional left arm due to the severed nerves in my C6 section of my shoulder. I have to figure out how I'm going to ever finish raising my sister the way she deserves and give her everything i never had. Now we have to dedicate our life for a year to physical therapy just before i can even get anywhere with finding a doctor who can fix my severed nerves.

He adds his stomach and and intestines were also sliced.




If you are going to stab or rob someone shouldn't you have enough sense to wear a mask. Our criminal justice system is starting to collapse and our political leaders silence will lead to more violence.

I feel terribly for the victim but is there anything to support that a gay hate crime has occurred as alleged by the victim and this article? When something is reported as a hate crime without evidence, it sows doubt over all hate crimes that are legitimately classified as such.

who better than the actual victim of the crime to know ...?

seems weird you don't want to take his word for it.

Or do you just think such "splaining" was original thought?

Yes, the testimony of the victim. Believe it or not, that's still considered evidence in this day or age.

You know, I wonder why we never see this kind of question on, say, bank robbery news? "Is there any evidence other than the bank teller that they actually wanted to rob the bank?"
It's almost like...people are so determined to be convinced that hate crimes don't occur, so they come up with any reason they can to ignore them, until they can't anymore.
