Gay man attacked on NYC subway while other riders looked on
Urena Morel Frankelly and his partner were verbally harassed -- and Frankelly brutally assaulted -- on a New York City subway while other riders looked on and did nothing.
According to a report in the New York Daily News, Frankelly and his partner were on a downtown No. 2 train when a woman took a picture of the couple.
When Frankelly asked her why she was photographing them, the woman allegedly shouted:
“Feed your face, faggot." Another woman also chimed in, apparently asking Frankelly's partner: “Why you with that faggot?” he told the Daily News.
A fight broke out, and the woman and three others -- including one man -- began attacking Frankelly, the report alleges.
His partner tried to break up the fight, but no one other subway riders attempted to help. The group continued to punch Frankelly repeatedly in the face, leaving him with his left eye swollen shut and a deep cut above the socket.
