Last month in Manhattan, a vicious hate crime attack resulted in a 72-year-old man suffering from a broken jaw. According to the police, the attack was brutal and unprovoked.
According to the NYPD, a group of four men shouted derogatory remarks towards a member of the LGBTQ+ community before physically assaulting him near West 17th Street and Ninth Avenue in Chelsea at approximately 10:15 p.m. on September 15th. The victim sustained serious injuries, including a broken jaw and cuts on his head and hands, and required medical treatment at a nearby hospital. It is unacceptable that members of the LGBTQ+ community continue to face violence and discrimination, and it is crucial that society takes steps towards creating a safer and more inclusive environment for all individuals.
According to the police, the assailants fled the scene of the attack and were spotted entering the building located at 420 West 19th Street. As of now, no arrests have been made in connection with the incident.
An investigation into the incident is currently being conducted by the Hate Crimes Task Force of the NYPD.
