The Blenheim man who was attacked by two men calling him a “pink-shirt-wearing homo” has decided not to make a formal statement to Police and the case has been closed.

Kent Morgan was walking home from work when he was assaulted by two men because he was wearing a pink shirt. The men shoved him to the ground from behind and he was restrained before being punched repeatedly in the head.

Morgan says he does not want to draw out the proceedings and had struggled to move on following the attack.
