Ex-guards involve in alleged gay beating get court date

The former security guards who were caught on camera beating an alleged homosexual student at the University Of Technology (UTech) recently will face the court on November 22.

Orville Rennie and Samuel Thomas have both been charged with assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

They were granted station bail on Friday.

The men are being represented by attorney-at-Law Christopher Townsend.

Rennie and Thomas were arrested on November 3, after they were seen on video beating the student.

On November 1, the male student was set upon by a mob which alleged he was found in a compromising position with another male student.

He reportedly ran and sought refuge in one of the guard rooms on the campus as the mob pursued him.

However, he was reportedly beaten by the guards while in the security post.

The men have since been fired by the security company Marksman Limited.
