Partiers at a West Village hotel assaulted a man in an elevator while yelling anti-gay slurs last weekend.
The incident occurred at 1 a.m. at the Jane Hotel on October 30th during the hotel's "Halloween at the Jane Hotel Ballroom" party.
A 36-year-old man was in an elevator when, the NYPD says, one person in a large group "made an anti-gay statement towards the victim. One of the individuals then punched the victim, while another kicked the victim in the face."
The victim suffered a laceration to his forehead and went to Mount Sinai for treatment.
The suspects, described as five males and two females, around 20-30 years old, fled. Here's video of the suspects in costumes:
