The first attack took place on Sunday when two gay men say they were beaten outside Madison Square Garden, and the second took place early Friday morning when two more men were attacked outside the 33rd Street Path station.
Cops were able to nab Asllan Berisha and Brian Ramirez for the most recent attack while others involved were able to run away. They are being charged with hate crimes.
On Saturday police released new video in the search for a group that authorities want to question about last Sundays attacks. The video footage shows eight men who the victims say started yelling anti-gay slurs, then beat them after the Knicks game.
