NYC FIND THEM! – NYPD Release Video of 8 Knicks Fans Wanted in Violent Gay Bashing Attack

FIND The NY Knicks Gaybashers!

On Sunday afternoon Nick Porto and his partner Kevin Atkins were gay bashed in broad daylight near Madison Square Garden in NYC by a group of 8 men wearing NY Knicks jerseys.

“They called us f—-ts,” said Porto, a clothing designer. “They made fun of my jeans — I made the jeans myself, for that day.”

When Porto turned around asked why they were shouting at him, the group of men knocked the pair to the ground and began to violently kick and punch them.

Porto, suffered a broken nose and head injuries while his partner suffered a broken right wrist and lost his bag with iPad and cell phone in the attack.

Although the NYPD has stated that the attackers are unlikely to be identified because so many people in the area were wearing Knicks jerseys because of the Indiana Pacers vs. Knicks game that had just let out one bystander has come forth and provided police with some cell phone images of one of the attackers as they walked away from their heinous act.

PLEASE take a look at the picture above and the video below.

If you recognize ANY of these men call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
