The New York Police Department is looking for a suspect in a possible hate crime.

On 2 March, two men were at the West 4th Street Subway Station in Manhattan’s West Village neighborhood. They were approached by a third man.

‘Are you Polish? Are you faggots,’ the suspect allegedly asked, as reported by the Daily News.

The men ignored the suspect.

‘I hate faggots,’ the suspect allegedly said, before punching, one of the men, three times in the face.

The 39-year-old victim was knocked down. He sustained a broken orbital bone, fractured nose, and a  deep cut above an eyelid.

The two men ran from the scene to hospital where the victim was treated for the injuries.

The culprit is described in his late 20s, 5ft, 6ins, and 170 pounds.

If you have information about this crime, please call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.
