New York— The New York City Anti-Violence Project (AVP) will hold a Press Conference on at 2pm today at 1 Police Plaza about a bias-motivated attack of Josh Williams, Ben Collins, and Antonio Maenza, three openly gay men in Bed-Stuy Brooklyn on Sunday, June 2nd by New York Police Department (NYPD) officers. The survivors reported that they were walking past the 79th Precinct when an NYPD officer accused one of the men, a person of color, of public urination and attacked him, throwing him against a police car. The officer was joined by other officers who also attacked the man, throwing him to the ground and pepper spraying him while he was in handcuffs. The survivor was handcuffed tightly, causing lacerations. The survivor's injuries were treated at a hospital, where he was again restrained with wrist and ankle cuffs. The group of officers also arrested the other two survivors. During the attack the survivors have reported that a NYPD officer used the anti-gay slur "faggot." AVP has obtained video of the assault from the survivors, which can be viewed here.
