Arrest Made In Brutal Attack On Gay Journalist Randy Gener

An arrest has been made in the assault on gay theater journalist Randy Gener in New York City.

According to the New York Daily News:

Leighton Jennings, 24, was arrested for second-degree assault late Tuesday — more than a week after Randy Gener, 46, was attacked on Seventh Ave. near W. 54th St. on Jan. 17, cops said.

It was not immediately clear how cops identified Jennings — of St. Albans, Queens — as the suspect wanted for the brutal beatdown.

A police source said investigators found no evidence suggesting it was a bias attack, and that the fight apparently stemmed from an argument after Gener and Jennings' gal pal bumped into each other on the street.

Jennings is scheduled for arraignment on Wednesday as Gener remains in critical condition following brain surgery.

In 2007, Instinct magazine selected me as one of 2007's Leading Men. It was a highlight of my gay life. :-)
