Police haven't said if these incidents are related, but these attacks seem to have many similarities. I have to wonder if this gay bashing: http://www.abc15.com/dpp/news/national/san-diego-man-beaten-with-baseball-bat-for-being-gay-suffers-broken-eye-socket-cracked-ribs

And this robbery: http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2013/dec/23/man-atttacked-bat-city-heights-attempted-robbery/

are related, and done by the same attackers.
