(DNAINFO) Noah Hurowitz — A group of people yelled anti-gay slurs and attacked a 27-year-old woman as she was eating dinner with her mother at a Second Avenue restaurant over the weekend, the NYPD said.
Police are investigating it as a possible hate crime.
The victim and her 46-year-old mother were eating at BarKogi, a Korean fusion restaurant at 957 Second Ave., near East 50th Street, when three strangers sitting nearby started shouting obscenities and anti-gay comments at the pair just after 1 a.m. on Sept. 12, police said
The strangers, a man and two women, then threw the victim to the ground and dragged her across the floor by her legs, causing cuts and bruises on her knees, according to authorities.
The group of attackers then fled the restaurant. The victim was taken to NYU Langone Medical Center for treatment, police said.
