A man was Tuesday arrested after shouting homophobic slurs and stabbing a gay couple leaving a Denver nightclub, according to police.

Christopher Huizar, and Gabriel Roman were leaving The Church on Sunday evening, as a man, as Dylan Payne, confronted with the couple and stabbed them with a pocket knife, FOX31 Denver reported, quoting a probable cause statement.

The couple suffered multiple stab wounds and told FOX31 Denver they believe that they were attacked because they are gay.

“We’re running and I didn’t realize how bad it was, until he,” my hand! ” and then I took my shirt off and I wrapped it around and there was blood everywhere, like so much blood,” Huizar said.

Huizar told the station he was stabbed in the throat once and that Novel had a number of stripes on his back and on his hand.

“It is much deeper than just the physical damage. Of course, we are relieved that this guy is caught or whatever, but there is still that fear, I guess you could say: who is it?” Novel said.

Huizar set up a GoFundMe to help pay for hospital bills.

Payne, 24, was held in connection with the attack, according to the Denver Post.

The police are investigating whether the attack was launched about the men’s sexual orientation.
