Police were called to Big Tomato Pizza, 2613 Ingersoll Ave., after a woman and a man called to report an assault around 3:15 a.m. on Dec. 21. They said the man was refused service based on sexual orientation by the restaurant clerk. They said when confronted for his bigotry, the suspect threw a napkin holder at the male victim, injuring his lip, then came from behind the counter and punched both victims. He dragged the male victim outside, pushed him against a vehicle and punched him several times. Police said all three suffered injuries, but the suspect was arrested for interference with official acts because he refused to even give his name for the report. Investigations continue.
