Police Release Footage of 8 Knicks Fans Wanted in Violent Attack on Gay Couple: VIDEO


Earlier this week I reported on an attack on a gay couple that took place on Sunday afternoon near Madison Square Garden. The attackers were wearing NY Knicks gear (a game was happening at the time) and a bystander provided police with some cell phone images of one of the attackers.

GaycrimeNick Porto and his partner Kevin Atkins were assaulted by a group of men using homophobic slurs as they walked arm-in-arm on Eighth Avenue at 34th street after having brunch.

On Tuesday, police released a photo of one of the suspects and now they have released video showing seven others they want to question regarding the attacks.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...
