The Anti-Violence Project today urged gay men visiting the Footscray Park area to remain alert for potential dangers following the receipt of reports of homophobically motivated physical assaults in the area.

AVP head Greg Adkins said two separate reports have been received that gay men have recently been assaulted in the park. “We ask anyone in the GLBT community living nearby to Footscray Park or travelling past, to be vigilant and adopt protective behaviours especially when groups of males are moving through the park or adjacent areas.

“Anyone with information is urged to contact the Anti-Violence Project and either make an online violence report, speak directly with someone from the AVP by calling 0407664442, or leave a messages for the AVP to follow-up on 03 9660 3970.

“If you feel unsafe call Police 000 and move away from danger. When safe contact the AVP,” he said.
