SC Gay Man Attacked by Mob

Joshua Esskew said he stopped at the Gas Spot on South Cherry Road last Saturday. The 19-year-old said one second he heard a gay slur and the next second he was almost unconscious.

“I responded with, ‘What was that you said?’ But nothing offensive toward them,” Esskew said, describing the encounter.

Surveillance video from the store shows a man hitting Esskew over the head with a beer bottle.

“Three came up from the gas pumps. Two came up toward the Laundromat. There were three or four already standing there. They all just came,” Esskew said.

Investigators say a mob rushed to join in the attack just because they could.
