Two Men Beaten by Trio Who Allegedly Thought They Were Gay

Police say two men leaving a downtown Santa Barbara bar were beaten by three men with shaved heads who apparently thought the victims were gay.

Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte says one of the attackers made an anti-gay comment before the trio attacked the men early Sunday.

There's video of the attack, which is being handled as a hate crime.

One victim suffered a broken jaw and head wound requiring staples to close. The other man had minor injuries.

Duarte tells the Santa Barbara News-Press that investigators are asking for public help in finding the suspects, who are white male adults in their 20s with shaved heads.

Police Chief Cam Sanchez says hate crimes will not be tolerated in the coastal city.
