NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Police continue to search for several men wanted in connection with a hate crime in Chelsea.

The vicious attack took place around midnight Tuesday, shortly after Peter Notman and Michael Felenchak left the Chelsea Bowtie Cinemas on 23rd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.

The men said they were holding hands as they turned onto 24th Street, when they were approached by two other men who yelled anti-gay slurs, according to police.

Felenchak, 27, and Notman, 53, were then attacked by two young men, as well as four others who joined in, they added.

“It was six of them against the two of us,” Notman said. “Typical of the cowards they are.”
