Feb. 19, 2016 Staff Report

Three men yelled gay slurs as they robbed and assaulted a man in Jackson Heights.

The victim was walking near Roosevelt Ave and 81st Street at 2 am Wednesday morning, when the men attacked him, according to police.

The trio punched the man in his face and kicked him, before taking his money. According to reports, they called him “worthless” and “trash” because he is gay.

The victim was unconscious after the beating, but quickly came too and walked to Elmhurst Hospital, where he was treated.

A man was beaten up, robbed and sexually assault by three men who shouted anti-gay slurs in November. It is not clear at this time if the two incidents are related.
