A HOMELESS MAN said he went to a bar on Spring Street while he was high on meth and GHB. He said he left the club to have a "three-way" with some friends and do more meth. Then, he left his friends to walk to another friend's house. Along the way, the homeless man was approached by a man in a car. The man asked him if he wanted to party. The homeless man agreed to party. Then the man (described only as "a queer") threw the homeless man over a fence, dragged him under a house, and tied him up. The homeless man could not describe the man -- not even his race. The homeless man had minor scrapes on his arms and legs, but no serious injuries. The homeless man said he was not sexually assaulted, even though he passed out repeatedly during the incident. Also, the homeless man couldn't provide enough information to find the place where he was tied up.
