The recent home invasion and vicious attack on a lesbian woman in Lincoln, Nebraska is being described by the Human Rights Campaign as “truly horrific.” The LBGT rights organization is calling on federal authorities to investigate the alleged hate crime.
CNN reported that three masked men allegedly broke into the 33-year-old woman’s home early Sunday morning, tied her up, and carved words into her arms and stomach with a knife. One of the words included the derogatory slur “dyke.”
The men also spray-painted anti-gay graffiti inside the home and set the house on fire. Police said the fire did little damage.
The woman fled bound, naked and bleeding to her neighbor’s house.
“I was in shock,” the woman’s neighbor told CNN. “She was naked, her hands were tied with zip ties. All I could see was a cut across her forehead and blood running down.”
She was taken to a local hospital, where she was treated for her injuries.
