Three gay bars on Cedar Springs Road in Dallas were vandalized overnight.
The three — Woody’s, Jr’s Bar and Grill, and the Mining Company — had their front doors smashed, according to NBC News.
A spokesperson from Caven Enterprises, which manages the three bars, says it doesn’t believe it to be a hate crime or related to the recent attacks as surveillance video confirms one person is responsible for the vandalism at all three bars.
The perpetrator is believed to be a disgruntled bar patron who has been banned from several of the bars along Cedar Springs Road.
The video has been turned over to the police who are now investigating the incidents as a case of criminal mischief, according to CBS local news.
Three gay men have been attacked in recent weeks.
A 29-year-old man was attacked by four men at the intersection of Sylvester Street and Wycliff Avenue in the Love Field neighborhood after the annual Alan Ross Texas Freedom parade.
The victim said his attackers made several gay slurs as they assaulted him ‘with their hands, feet and a baseball bat’ and took items from his pockets.
He was hospitalized with a fractured skull and numerous cuts and bruises.
On Sept 30 shortly after 1 am, Jaime Dominguez was attacked as he was leaving a bar on Cedar Springs.
He was stabbed multiple times, hit on the back of his head and knocked unconscious.
A third attack happened on Oct 2 in Cedar Springs, according to NBC News.
