man assaulted in colorado hate crime

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.
