Man’s Brother Wanted to “Cut the Gay Out of Him” 

During a dispute between brothers, one of the men allegedly said he was planning to “cut the gay out” of his sibling while he sharpened a large knife. 

40-year-old David Martinez lives in Miami. 

Early in the morning on February 24, Martinez was fighting with his brother. 

The dispute reportedly turned violent, and the Miami-Dade Police Department was notified.  

Officers were sent to the home to assess the situation and intervene if necessary. 

According to the affidavit, when they arrived, the officers spoke with Martinez’s brother.  

The man reportedly informed them that Martinez was acting out of character and that the odd behavior started to present the previous night. 

Martinez’s brother reportedly said that Martinez had a large kitchen knife in his hand. Martinez was sharpening the blade when he allegedly told his brother that he was going to “cut the ‘gay’ out of him.” 

The alleged victim said he tried to walk out the door and leave the residence, but Martinez reportedly went after him and would not allow him to go. 

The man reportedly said that he went back inside with his brother because he was afraid of what might happen if he did not comply. 

As soon as he had the opportunity, Martinez’s brother left the home, and the authorities were notified. 

It was reported that when officers tried to detain Martinez, the man allegedly fought against them until they had to hold him on the ground to put the handcuffs on him. 

Martinez was taken into custody and booked into the Miami-Dade County jail. He is facing charges for felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, felony kidnapping, and felony false imprisonment, in addition to two misdemeanor counts of resisting an officer.
