"Men in the bar eventually told him to leave."Shortly afterwards, Sunday, Martina and their friend noticed the man hiding in an alleyway across the street.So the couple, along with the man's girlfriend, then decided to try to run to their flat, just five minutes away.But they quickly realised the thug was chasing them.They managed to get inside to what they thought was safety, but moments later the man kicked the door in before launching a brutal attack.Sunday, who works as a chef and uses the pronouns they/them, said: "We had only just got in the door when he kicked it open."What happened next has left Sunday and their partner shaken and terrified.Sunday was dragged outside and onto the street where the man pushed them on the ground face first before raining blows on to their face as he pinned their hand down by his knee to stop them protecting themself.They said: "My face was on the ground and he was hitting me and restraining me."He was being homophobic and transphobic and telling me he was going to kill me and kick my face in.

It was so scary." Sunday's partner Martina had managed to pull the man off them by the time local carabinieri, Italian paramilitary police, arrived at the scene.

Sunday has been left with a ‘severe’ metacarpal fracture in their right hand following the assault.They said: "I couldn’t move my body after the attack, Martina has had to become a full-time carer for me.“My body is still quite battered, I feel like I’ve been smacked by bus.”The 'traumatised' couple have been left struggling to get over the horrifying incident, as they suffer from 'daily' panic.
