BEDFORD-STUYVESANT, Brooklyn — Police are looking for a group of people who allegedly hurled anti-gay slurs and injured a man in a possible hate crime attack in Bedford-Stuyvesant early Saturday morning.
It happened around 4 a.m. in the area of Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue.
Police say three men and a woman were walking when they were approached by a group of people who began yelling anti-gay slurs at them.
When a 27-year-old man tried to defuse the situation, one of the suspects allegedly punched him in the face resulting in a broken jaw, police say.
He was transported to the hospital for treatment.
The group fled the area and the Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.
