A suspect in one of two brutal anti-gay attacks that rocked the city this week surrendered to cops late Tuesday, sources said. Gabriel Roman, 39, turned himself in at a Bronx stationhouse and was charged with three counts of assault as a hate crime, including a felony count, police sources said. Roman is accused in the first of two violent anti-gay attacks that came just hours after hundreds rallied against hate crimes in the West Village on Monday. Police say Roman knocked a 45-year-old man unconscious after hurling anti-gay slurs at him on E. Fourth St. near Avenue D Monday night.
