Police arrest suspect in Cleveland gay bar beating

Cleveland Police make an arrest in the beating of a man outside a gay bar during Labor Day weekend.

We've learned the suspect is a juvenile.

"I feel a little happy knowing that there's one of those kids that are now off the streets," Jared Fox tells 19 Action News.

He was attacked by a large group as he walked to a club at West 92nd and Detroit in Cleveland.

Fox says he was stomped and kicked and he ended up with an eye swollen shut, a ruptured eardrum and other injuries.

Fox says the crowd specifically shouted slurs at him since the bar he was headed to is known for attracting gays.

Fox says he is still living in fear, "I had to walk with my phone with 911 dialed and my finger was still hovering over the call button, I was still afraid."

Another juvenile had been arrested days later for throwing rocks at people at the gay bar.

The two incidents led to meetings in the gay community and meetings with city leaders about how to address hate crimes.
