Police have released new video in the search for a group of men who attacked a gay couple outside Madison Square Garden over the weekend.

Authorities want talk to eight men seen on the surveillance video taken near the incident, which happened just after 6 p.m. in front of 490 Eighth Avenue.

The 22- and 28-year-old victims say the men started yelling anti-gay slurs, then beat the couple up after the Knicks game Sunday.

One of the victims has a broken nose. Both victims were treated and released from Bellevue Hospital.

Police had previously released photos of one person of interest. He is described as an Hispanic male in his 20s, approximately 6-feet tall with brown hair and a tattoo on his left forearm. He was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, white sneakers, a white Knicks jersey #7 and blue jeans.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
