2 more reports of anti-gay attacks in NYC following killing where man was taunted with slurs

New York City police say there have been two more reports of possible anti-gay attacks, following the killing of a gay man taunted with homophobic slurs.

Police spokesman Paul Browne says the attacks occurred Monday and early Tuesday.

In one, a 45-year-old man was attacked in Manhattan's East Village by a drinking companion who yelled an epithet.

In the second, two men were walking in lower Manhattan at about 5 a.m. Tuesday. Two other men yelled homophobic slurs in Spanish and attacked them. They were arrested on hate crime assault charges.

The reports come as police increased a presence in nearby neighborhoods through the end of June, which is Gay Pride Month.

Mark Carson was killed Saturday; a man has been charged with murder as a hate crime.
