Gay couple attacked, accused of having monkeypox in Northwest DC

WASHINGTON - A young gay couple tells FOX 5 they were accused of having monkeypox and attacked in D.C.’s Shaw neighborhood simply due to their sexual orientation. D.C. police have confirmed they are investigating the weekend incident as a possible hate crime."I feel like since the attack I’ve been in kind of this weird state of constant fight or flight, like I can’t really feel at ease, and it seems kind of surreal, I don’t know," said one of the two victims on Tuesday.

He spoke with FOX 5 over the phone and asked to go by "Robert" for safety reasons.Robert shared two photos, showing his partner’s busted lip and a bloody shirt from the incident.According to a police report, the assault happened around 5:40 p.m. on Sunday, Aug.

7.  The two victims say they were walking from U Street to a bus stop by the Shaw Metro Station when a group of young males, believed to be teens, called them homophobic slurs, including "monkeypox f----ts."Robert tells FOX 5 that at first, the couple turned to the name-calling but then decided to walk away. That’s when he says one of the suspects ran behind him and sucker-punched him as he turned around.

His partner was also hit. Robert went to get checked out on Tuesday after he says he suffered bruising around his temple and forehead. Robert says his partner, 23-year-old "Antonio," received three stitches in his mouth.FOX 5 also spoke with the witness who called 911. That person told us multiple times, that she thought the suspects were going to kill the two victims, describing what she saw as a serious "beating."The witness says the two victims were minding their own business, walking across the street in the opposite direction when the homophobic name-calling began."No one should go through

Jagmeet Singh says grocery chains are ‘profiteering’ amid inflation. Is it true?
Jagmeet Singh is calling out Canada’s major grocery chains for making record profits amid soaring inflation, which he calls “profiteering.”Speaking to Global News Radio 640 host Greg Brady Tuesday, Singh accused corporate grocers of “gouging” Canadians with marked-up food prices while still reporting higher profits, which he says doesn’t add up.“If you’re increasing prices to offset increased costs, they would have the same level of profit,” he said. “But we’re seeing a significant increase in their profits.“It shows that they’re just gouging Canadians at this difficult time.” Global food, fuel prices won’t ease until 2024 due to Ukraine war: World Bank On Wednesday, Singh called for an “excess profits tax” on major grocery chains and oil and gas companies, expanding the Liberals’ plan to place a higher 18 per cent tax on bank profits exceeding $1 billion.The NDP say the revenue collected from their proposed tax would help raise the annual GST tax credit and Canada Child Benefit by $500 each per year.“Why is it that wealthy companies get to make more, and families have to suffer, and why do governments allow that to happen?” he asked.“The whole point of government is to level that, to ensure companies aren’t gouging or exploiting a difficult time.”A look at the latest earnings reports from the three major grocery chains — Loblaw, Empire Co.
