Police are looking for three men and three women who allegedly attacked a straphanger after uttering anti-gay slurs while riding a No. 2 train headed downtown from the Upper West Side Monday.
Authorities say the 23-year-old victim and a friend boarded the train at the 125th Street and Lenox Avenue station at about 6 p.m. Once the train started moving, police say one of the female suspects began taking pictures of the victim and his friend.
When the victim asked the woman to stop, she allegedly began shouting anti-gay slurs at him. The ensuing argument escalated into an alleged physical assault on the victim by the woman who had started the altercation, along with two other women and three men.
