"Cut The Gay Out"

FEBRUARY 28--While threatening his brother with a knife, a Florida Man said that he was “going to cut the ‘gay’ out of” his sibling, according to police who arrested the suspect on multiple criminal charges.

According to a Miami-Dade Police Department report, officers responded Thursday morning to a 911 call about a “violent dispute” at a Miami residence between David Martinez, 40, and his brother.

Martinez’s kin told cops that his sibling had “been acting strangely since last night” and “threatened him while sharpening a large kitchen knife, telling him he was going to cut the ‘gay’ out of him.”

Martinez “told the victim he was going to kill him,” cops say. When the man sought to depart the residence, Martinez “followed him out, grabbed him, and told him to get back in the house.” In fear, the victim returned to the residence, but was “eventually able to exit the location and had a friend contact the police.”

When officers arrived at the home, Martinez “became irate” and was uncooperative to the point of struggling with cops who attempted to detain him. After being taken to the ground, Martinez was handcuffed by officers who seized a knife from the premises.

Seen above, Martinez was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and false imprisonment, all of which are felonies. He was also charged with two misdemeanor resisting counts.

Martinez, whose occupation is listed as “construction” in the police report, is being held in the county jail in lieu of $22,000 bond. (2 pages)
