Members of a New York City street gang found out one of their teenage recruits was gay, so they brutally beat and tortured him, his sexual partner, and another teenager according to police in New York City.  Seven people were arrested on charges of  assault, unlawful imprisonment, sodomy and menacing as hate crimes in the attacks earlier this week.

Two other suspects are still wanted in connection with the attack.

The group calls themselves the "Latin King Goonies."

According to investigators, gang members learned a 17 year old recruit had sex with a 30 year old man, so they beat the teen and sodomized him with the wooden plunger handle.   Police say they later beat the 30-year-old, and another 17-year-old they believed was gay.
