San Francisco police asked Wednesday for the public’s help in locating three assailants who attacked men they believed were gay in incidents in the Castro and Hayes Valley neighborhoods.

In both incidents, the three men approached the victims, who were alone, and punched them while yelling homophobic slurs, police said. Neither victim was seriously hurt.

Police are investigating the attacks as possible hate crimes.
