Denmark’s police prosecution authority will press charges against the 34-year-old man over the assault of Josue Medina Vazquez, which occurred on May 17th.

But the man will not be charged under Denmark’s anti-hate speech paragraph.

Although prosecutors believe the man said the words “I don’t like homos” when committing the assault, there is not thought to be sufficient basis for prosecuting the Slovakian for hate speech.

No witnesses are able to confirm the alleged homophobic remark.

The accused man was in Denmark to watch the ice hockey World Cup, which was hosted by Copenhagen according to TheLocal.dk.
