A woman has been arrested in Colorado after trashing a gay man’s apartment in what’s being treated as a hate crime.
The victim’s apartment was said to be trashed when Sarah Marie Diaz, 31, got upset after learning he was involved in a relationship with another man.
The victim called the Loveland police, saying that Diaz threw a plate at him, resulting in an injury.
According to the police report, she ‘destroyed his property‘ because she is angry at his ‘gay behavior‘.
Diaz admitted to throwing a plate but said she was trying to throw it at the floor. She also allegedly used a gay slur to describe the victim, according to police.
Police described the apartment as ‘in shambles with broken glass all over the floor, a TV hanging off the dresser from its cord, a table overturned in the living room and the floor and bed were both wet.’
Diaz is being charged with causing non-serious bodily injury, domestic violence, criminal mischief and assault in the third degree, with possible bias crime enhancements.
Colorado has hit headlines recently as it’s become the center of a gay cake storm.
Owners of the Masterpiece Cakeshop are suing the Colorado Civil Rights Commission (CCRC) after they refused to bake a cake for a transgender woman.
A federal court has now agreed to hear the case.
