NEW YORK — The New York Police Department is investigating a bias attack on two men who were the first gay couple to be married at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.
Police say it happened at a food store while Daniel and Larry Lennox-Choate were shopping Sunday afternoon. They say a man began shouting anti-gay obscenities at the couple and punched Daniel Lennox-Choate in the face.
The assailant fled on a bicycle after Larry Lennox-Choate said he intervened.
In a post on his Facebook page, Larry Lennox-Choate says it's difficult to believe that in 2015 they have to deal with anti-gay hate.
No arrests have been made.
The two married in 2013.
