After Sunday's Pride march, a subway rider on the F encountered two men making homophobic comments and filmed their horrible rants against LGBT youth on the train. The men then lashed out at the woman taping them, grabbing her and injuring her in the process. The police are now asking for the public's help in identifying them.

The NYPD characterizes the incident as an assault, not a hate crime. The victim, who was "left with bruises and scratches," had said, "I'm having trouble getting the police to recognize the incident as something more than just 'harassment' — the video depicts several attacks that happened (twice upon me, and once upon the queer woman). It's really upsetting that the attacks were downplayed to 'harassment' in the police report -- I was so specific and detailed about what happened."

The incident occurred at around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 30. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto Crime Stoppers' website at or by texting their tips to CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.
