Anti-gay slurs precede a violent assault

Colorado Springs Police are investigating an assault on a group of people that occurred at around 3:30 am Saturday. Officers were dispatched to the Albertacos Restaurant at 4494 Austin Bluffs Parkway when calls to 911 described a violent attack on a group of people outside.

Upon arrival, the suspects had left the area and the officers located several victims. One victim was taken to a local hospital where he was treated for severe facial fractures. That victim was subject to being kicked in the face and body by multiple assailants.

Police tell News First 5 that one suspect took exception to how one of the victims was dressed and then made several anti-gay verbal assaults to the group.

The suspects are described by witnesses and victims as 5 black males and 2 black females who left the scene in what was described as a silver passenger vehicle. The prime suspect in the assault is described as a black male, 5-05, 135 pounds with a bald head.
