A statement from MPD regarding the atttack reads, "We are investigating an Aggravated Assault that may have been motivated by hate bias. The GLLU was notified. Sunday, July 22, 2012, at approximately midnight, two complainants were in the 1900 block of 3rd Street NE when three suspects appeared from an unknown direction and began to yell homophobic slurs at them. The three suspects then approached the complainants and assaulted them. Suspects fled in an unknown direction, one complainant was taken to a local hospital for treatment for his injuries.
