ONTARIO: Cops Make Arrest In Brutal Gaybashing, Another Suspect Sought

Windsor police have arrested one man and are seeking another (LEFT) in the brutal beating and robbery of a 26 year-old gay man.
Stephen Lambert, 45, of no fixed address, is in custody facing a spate of charges in connection with the attack on Chris Rabideau, 26, who suffered a concussion, a broken nose, a blackened right eye, bloody lips and bruising on his face and neck when two male robbers beat him and kicked him in the head Friday morning. Police are still seeking a second suspect and have identified him as Michael Allard, 27, of Vanier Street in Windsor. The shocking incident began as a robbery but took on overtones of a hate crime, when the suspects allegedly blasted Rabideau with homophobic slurs like 'faggot.' The attack occurred about 1:40 a.m. near Ouellette Avenue and Giles Boulevard and continued in the lobby of the apartment building where Rabideau lives. The suspects and the attack were captured by the building's security cameras.
The man in the above photo is being sought on charges of robbery, assault causing bodily harm, forcible confinement, mischief and escaping lawful custody.
