Shocking Video Shows Brutal Homophobic Attack In NYC’s West Village

by Derek de Koff October 14, 2016


Last weekend in New York City’s Greenwich Village, a gay man was pushed headfirst into a restaurant window, and police are now investigating the assault as a hate crime.

Reportedly, the perpetrator shouted antigay and racist slurs during the attack, which was caught on surveillance video.

Fortunately, the window didn’t break — but the victim was still seriously injured. He’s currently recuperating in the hospital.

Commenting on the assault, State Senator Brad Hoylman said, “In Greenwich Village, the most tolerant neighborhood in the world, we’re going to stand up for our neighbors and make sure the perpetrator is caught.”

“We have to send a message loud and clear that this is unacceptable in our neighborhood,” said Councilwoman Margaret Chin.

The attacker has been described as roughly 6′ tall, and weighing about 240 pounds.
