“Honestly, it looked like something out of a TV show,” said 25-year-old Lloyd Guerrero of Richland Hills, Texas. He was referring to the scene that unfolded outside his apartment, when his 71-year-old neighbor Wanda Derby attacked him with her wooden cane.
The attack came a week after Derby’s son decided to move in with the openly gay Guerrero. Reportedly she struck Guerrero several times with her cane, then proceeded to choke him by placing the cane again his throat. Guerrero was treated at scene and had visible marks and bruises on his throat and body. The man’s mother, who witnessed the assault, said she was struck in the face as well.
