    Police have released new video of eight men they're looking to question in connection to a possible bias attack near Madison Square Garden Sunday evening that left two men with a broken nose and a bruised hand. 

    The victims were walking arm-in-arm past a McDonald's near Madison Square Garden when a group of men in their 20s allegedly began yelling anti-gay comments, then pushed the victims to the ground and began punching one of them in the face, breaking his nose, authorities said.
