A 23-year-old man says he was attacked on a New York City train on Wednesday night after being called a gay slur.
Urena Morel Frankelly says he was on a No. 2 southbound train when a woman with a group of other women and one man began taking pictures of him and his partner eating.
When Frankelly asked the woman why she was taking pictures of them she said, “Feed your face, f—” and another woman asked his partner, “Why are you with that f—?” resulting in an argument and beating. Frankelly says his partner tried to help as he was repeatedly punched while no one else on the train intervened.
Frankelly suffered a swollen eye and cut above his socket.

CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -
Police arrested 10 juveniles and one adult after they attacked a group of women aboard a CTA Red Line train about 6:30 p.m. Saturday.
All 11 were charged with battery. Two of the juveniles were also charged with strong-arm robbery, police said.
The women reported the robbery after they got off the train at the State and Monroe station, police said.
In a separate act of mob violence, 17 were arrested Saturday after a fight on the Magnificant Mile broke out.
The downtown area in recent years has endured a number of similar, seemingly-planned incidents -- sometimes referred to as "wildings."
In June 2011 Mayor Rahm Emanuel vowed to increase police presence downtown after several people were robbed in the same area by groups of teen males in a series of separate attacks.
