ECHO PARK (CBS) — A $25,000 reward was established Wednesday in an effort to help solve a brutal hate crime in Echo Park.

Security cameras caught the stabbing of two gay men on Echo Park Boulevard around midnight on May 24th.

“The Suspect tells the Victims, ‘You guys are f—ing f—-ts!’ He walks away with his 2 associates, then runs back toward the victims waiting for a bus and stabs Victim-1 in the abdomen,” Los Angeles police said.

The second victim was stabbed in the midsection, police said.

All three suspects are seen fleeing the scene on foot.

Los Angeles City Council Member Eric Garcetti hopes the reward will lead to information about the suspects and their conviction.
