New York City Police have ended a manhunt for a suspect that allegedly committed a hate crime.
Brandon McNamara surrendered himself to police after a two-day search. The 25-year-old was seen on surveillance cameras attaching a gay couple. He threw one man up against a tree and then punched the other man in the face.
The altercation happened in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, not far from a gay bar. The victims later received treatment at Bellevue Hospital, one for a fractured shoulder and the other a fractured finger.
“In partnership with the community, an arrest has been made in the 9-23-18 Hate Crime assault in Brooklyn in which a gay couple was brutally attacked,” police chief Dermot Shea said in a statement via Twitter.
McNamara surrendered himself to the Hate Crimes Unit of New York’s Seventh Precinct Wednesday morning. His employer Ernst & Young has suspended McNamara, pending further investigation. He has no criminal record to date.
