Police say the two victims were denied access to an after-hours billiards club. They were then approached by a group of men who allegedly shouted gay slurs and beat the men, according to police.
The alleged attack continued after the victims tried to escape and ended up across the street near the 33rd street PATH station.
Two suspects were arrested as others got away on foot. The suspects were identified as Asllan Berisha, 21, and Brian Ramirez, 21, both of New York City.
The men were charged with the hate crimes of felony assault and are being processed by the Port Authority Police.
Both victims suffered severe facial injuries and were treated at Belleview Hospital. One of the victims underwent eye surgery as a result of the beating.
