ACHILLE, Okla. -- Police in Achille said the FBI is now investigating an alleged attack on the city's top official.

Mayor David Northcutt reported that he was assaulted on Saturday. According to the mayor, a man using homophobic slurs came up behind him at the Kwik Check on State Highway 78 in Achille, hit him on the back of the head and knocked him unconscious.

Northcutt provided a photo taken at Texas Medical Center that showed his face was battered, bruised and bloodied.

The mayor said he filed a police report and that he was going to discuss the matter with the district attorney's office.

Last October, Northcutt was arrested after police said he and another man broke into a residence in Calera.

Deputies were called to Northcutt's home in 2014 after he fired a shot during a domestic argument.
