Chelsea hate crime attack suspect due in court
NEW YORK (WABC) -- One of the men accused of attacking a gay couple in Manhattan is due in court Monday.
Alfonso Lanier is charged with assault as a hate crime in the attack on West 25th Street in Chelsea.
Investigators say Lanier was part of a group that beat Michael Felenchak and his boyfriend Peter Nortman last month as they walked home from a movie.
Prosecutors said Lanier admitted to being at the scene and participating in the attack.
Police are still looking for at least five more suspects.
