Fare attacked gay Alaska cabbie with claw hammer, then robbed him, then took a nap, then claimed driver tried to rape him

Via Melissa Green of BentAlaska, who reported on the efforts of Fairbanks cabbies and the LGBT community to to raise funds for a cab driver savagely beaten by a robber, come the following details of the appalling attack, from the Fairbanks News Miner:
     Robert Charles Evans, 21 ... called a cab company in the early hours Thursday morning, calling for a particular cab driver, who was identified only by his initials in charging documents.
     The cab driver told Fairbanks police that Evans, sitting in the front seat, asked for a ride to the McGrath Road area but soon began to rub his leg and propositioned the driver for sex.
     The cab driver declined the invitation while driving but drove to his Front Street home about 5 a.m. where he and Evans had sex for more than an hour, documents stated
     Eventually, Evans told the man to close his eyes and began to reach for something, according to court documents
     At that point, everything “went bright,” and he felt Evans hit him in the head multiple times, according to charging documents.
     “He did hit me, I counted approximately eight times, with a hammer, using the claw side of the hammer,” the victim told Magistrate Nikole Schick at arraignments Friday afternoon.
     ...Evans admitted to police he beat the man and struck him with a hammer, but he claimed the cab driver was trying to rape him, according to charging documents...
     There's a lot more here...
