Suspects sought in alleged anti-gay attack at Miami Beach Pride Parade

Miami Beach Police are searching for four men who were caught on tape assaulting a gay couple in South Beach following Sunday's Miami Beach Gay Pride parade.

Miami Beach Police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said the distressing CCTV footage becomes even more extreme.

Rene Chalarca and his boyfriend Dimitri Lugonov were walking out of the restroom in Lumus Park at around 7:45 pm on Sunday when four men approached and violently attacked them.

The beating continued after Logunov was knocked to the ground and Charlarca tried to confront the attackers. Two men are seen emerging from the facility, whereupon they are attacked.

One of the attackers shouts a Spanish slur used to refer to LGBT men before he and the other attackers begin repeatedly punching the two men.

Thats when Helmut Muller, who was standing near the bathrooms at the time of the fight, went after the attackers to break up the fight. Muller later said the two victims had been badly injured, with multiple bruises and cuts.

"We were together. So for me, it's like, yes, it was a hate crime", Chalarca said.

According to a police report, a bystander who saw the attack and tried to intervene was pushed to the ground and suffered a cut to the back of his head. "It was gay pride, South Beach was full of gay people", Logunov told NBC Miami.

Three other men - one in a blue T-shirt, another wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts, and another wearing a gray T-shirt - dropped what they were holding and punched the alleged victims, including the good Samaritan, authorities said. The attackers then ran toward the beach.

Miami Police are asking for help to identify the men involved in the attack.

Anyone with information about the attack is asked to contact Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-571-TIPS.
