Police: Gay Men Attacked in Pittsburgh

Tuesday Oct 8, 2013

PITTSBURGH-Police are searching for three suspects after two gay men were attacked in Pittsburgh.

Authorities say that the unidentified victims were attacked early Sunday morning outside of a bar in the Lawrenceville neighborhood. Three unknown men began yelling derogatory remarks and then attacked one victim, who was punched and kicked when he was on the ground. The 26-year-old victim refused medical attention and his 22-year-old boyfriend escaped without injury.

Police say the suspects in the assault got into a black Hyundai and drove away. One witness gave police a possible license plate number, but no arrests have been made.
