Man beaten in gay bias attack
Two men walking together in Chelsea were attacked yesterday by a pair of thugs spewing anti-gay slurs, police said.
The punks confronted the men just before 1 a.m. at W. 18th St. and Ninth Ave. as they headed to the Roxy bar, a known gay hangout, police sources said.
One 33-year-old victim was punched in the face, sources said. He tussled with the attacker when another came up from behind and punched him in the back of the head, cops said.
