Police have arrested a Mount Vernon man in connection with an attack on a gay couple in Manhattan last spring.
Martin Martinez is charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment.
Investigators say Nick Porto and Kevin Atkins were walking near Madison Square Garden last May when a group of men began harassing them.
They say the men pushed the couple to the ground and began punching and kicking them.
Porto's nose was broken, while Atkins injured his hand.
This is the first arrest in the case.
Other suspects remain at large.
Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
