Man Charged With Menacing in Alleged Bias Attack

A Hartford police officer under investigation for the beating of a suspect took his first steps toward retiring.

Police have arrested a man on a hate crime charge in connection to an anti-gay incident.

Authorities said a 43-year-old Brooklyn man approached two 22-year-old men around 9:30 Saturday morning on Utica Avenue and began making comments about one of the men's clothing.

As the men continued on their way, police said the older man pulled out a knife and made anti-gay remarks while menacing them.

The younger men flagged down two police officers, who took the 43-year-old into custody.

He was charged with menacing as a hate crime and criminal possession of a weapon.
