Police are searching for three men who allegedly made anti-gay statements and assaulted a man near Stuyvesant Town in the East Village last month.

The 27-year-old victim got into an argument with the men, who were allegedly making anti-gay statements while walking along First Avenue near 15th Street at about 3 a.m. on New Year's Day, police said. 

The victim, who was with another man, was then physically assaulted by the three men, according to police. He suffered bruising on the side of his head.

Anyone who recognizes the men in the surveillance images is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
