Three masked men allegedly broke into a 33-year-old lesbian womans home, bound her arms and carved anti-gay slurs into her arms and abdomen.
A vigil was held in support of the woman who was allegedly attacked for her sexual orientation.
A 33-year-old Nebraska woman said three masked intruders tied her up, carved homophobic slurs into her skin and then set her house on fire in a shocking case that police are reportedly classifying as a hate crime.
A spokeswoman for the Lincoln Police Department told CNN on Monday investigators found a derogatory slur used against lesbians spray painted inside her home following the attack early Sunday morning.
The woman, an open homosexual who was not identified in local reports, made her way to a neighbors home after her assailants left. She called police around 4 a.m. I was in shock, neighbor Linda Rappl told CNN. She was naked, her hands were tied with zip ties. All I could see was a cut across her forehead and blood running down.
The woman told police three men wearing ski masks broke into her home and bound her hands, the Omaha World-Herald reported. The men also reportedly used a knife to cut the gay slurs into her skin and then doused her home with gasoline to start the blaze.

Is her name Tawana Brawley?
“... but why does this smell of a hoax..?”
I thought the same thing, SC. If I was a betting person, my money would be placed in the “hoax” category.
I also get the whiff of HOAX. It's just too pat and familiar.
In the past, these supposed antilesbian attacks have been faked by the lesbian. I don’t know if this one has been made up but.....
A lesbian cutter?
I feel awful saying it but count me in - me3.
Every one of these has been a hoax. Unfortunately, that aspect rarely gets as much attention as the original setup ...
Not buying it. At least, not yet.
Isn’t that pic from the vigil the homosexuals held in support of the poor BOYS that were raped and sodomized by a PEDERAST?
if a queer gets asphyxiated during some kinky game involving whips, chains, chocolate syrup and Drano, they’d probably call it a “hate crime”.
Maybe because she wasn’t raped or sexually assaulted
the body writing stuff....? Seriously, what angry men do THAT when their masculinity is threatened?
This one screams “lesbian attack” due to love affair, rejecton or other deviant love triangle gone bad, or lesbian attack to gain sympathy
time will tell
LOL... nice try, freak.
Betting all the “carving” was accessible to her dominate writing hand.....
Cut on forehead... is this the WWE?
There is only her word that this happened to her by outside attackers. That's why this smells fishy to me
I think you mean it SMELLS fishy.
I agree with all these who smell HOAX. Knee jerk response for me was to wonder what gay spat was behind this. It seems well documented that same sex relationships are more prone to spouse abuse than their heterosexual opposites.I so smell HOAX in this yellow journalism.
