First male couple to marry at West Point attacked in NYC, assailant leaves covered in own blood

First male couple
The first male couple to be married at West Point Military Academy were attacked Sunday (2 August) in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood.
Larry Lennox-Choate III, a 2009 West Point graduate, wrote in a Facebook post that he and his husband were in a bodega when a man began screaming anti-gay obscenities at them then ‘sucker punched’ Daniel Lennox-Choate, a 2007 West Point grad.

‘It’s hard to believe that in 2015 we would have to deal with anti-gay hate crimes in soho of all places,’ he wrote. ‘First off- we’re ok. Aside from one fat lip and a sore punching arm, we are fine. The guy who screamed anti-gay obscenities at us in a bodega before sucker-punching Danny? He left covered in his own blood with his tail between his legs after I handled the situation and tossed him in the street like the coward loser he is.’

He added: ‘The hate crimes division of the NYPD is on the case and we have full faith a positive outcome will follow. We refuse to be victims and are thankful we can defend ourselves, but are saddened by the fact that idiots like this guy might not pick two guys who went through Plebe Boxing next time.’
