Police are looking for two men who carried out a homophobic attack on Halloween – while dressed as fairies.

The thugs, who were wearing pink tutus and fairy wings, carried out the homophobic attack in Surbiton, south-west London, early on Saturday morning.

The pair hurled anti-gay abuse at their two victims, before punching them and kicking them in the head.

A spokesperson for the Met told ITV: “At this early stage it is believed that both victims were walking along Victoria Road when they passed a group of men and women. They were subjected to homophobic abuse by the men in the group.

“The two victims walked away but when they reached the zebra crossing near Brighton Road the two men from the group who were both wearing pink tutus approached them.

“They punched the 18-year-old victim. The 21-year-old victim was kicked and stamped upon. Passers by intervened to stop the attack.”

Kingston police added that no arrests have been made, but the investigation is ongoing.
