On Sunday, November 14th, Matthew was the victim of a hate crime where he was attacked and left unconscious. After a night out with friends, he was walking up his street where he has always felt safe in the West Hollywood community. He was surprised by an attack where he was hit and immediately knocked out. He suffered head injuries and a compound fractured jaw in two places. He has minimal recollection and did not see who randomly attacked him, but the police, his family, and friends are involved to find the individual or individuals responsible for this brutal attack.
Matthew is currently in the hospital pending jaw reconstruction surgery and has many months ahead in his recovery and procedures that will need to be done.
Thank you for your support and we appreciate any donations that will contribute towards Matthew’s extensive medical bills as he prepares for this surgery and more in the future.
