The New York City Police Department is hunting down four men who are suspected of attacking a gay couple after Sunday night's New York Knicks-Indiana Pacers Game 1 match-up in New York.According to a report, Nick Porto, 27, says that he was walking arm-in-arm with his partner, 22-year-old Kevin Atkins, on Eighth Avenue when four men attacked them.The couple say that they were repeatedly punched and kicked. After the attack, the victims were rushed to Bellevue Hospital, where Porto was treated for a broken nose.Although police haven't classified the attack as a hate crime, Porto said that he had no doubt. "I've never had a feeling like this before in the city," Porto explained. "I didn't know that it's not over, that this sort of stuff still happens.""They called us f****s," Porto said. "They made fun of my jeans -- I made the jeans myself, for that day."The NYPD released two surveillance photos [on the right] of one the four suspects early Tuesday morning. Investigators described him as a 6-foot-tall Hispanic man with brown hair and a tattoo on his left arm. He is seen wearing a No. 7 N.Y. Knicks jersey, a white T-shirt, blue hat and blue jeans.Anyone with information about the suspect(s) or the attack can call NYPD Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
