Identified only as two women and a man in their 30s and 40s, the suspects were caught on surveillance video walking away from the restaurant shortlyafter the women said they were attacked by the trio.


The women were sitting at a table in front of the threesome when investigators said they began shouting anti-gay slurs and obscenities.

The New York Post reported they called the daughter a "f---ing lesbian" before they pulled her to the ground.

Police arrived to the restaurant at around 1 a.m. to find the daughter with cuts and bruises on her knees, that she said were the result of being dragged by her legs.
