Four young men accused of anti-gay attack on Long Island

BABYLON, N.Y. - Police say four young men from Oceanside are facing hate crime charges for an alleged anti-gay attack against two other men in Babylon on Saturday night.

The suspects were out celebrating a friend's birthday on Saturday and were walking along Deer Park Avenue when they asked two other men for directions to the train station.

Police say that's when the situation turned ugly. The four suspects are accused of punching, kicking and shoving the victims while yelling anti-gay slurs. Prosecutors say that anti-gay slurs were used both prior to and during the attack.
