Urena Morel Frankellym (pictured), 23, was verbally and physically attacked on a Manhattan subway by 5 women and 1 man as fellow travelers stood by and did absolutely nothing, reports the NY Daily News.

Frankellym and his partner were eating when a female passenger began snapping pictures of them. After he asked why she was taking the pictures, the situation swiftly escalated from homophobic slurs to physical violence.

NY Daily News reports:

“Why you taking a picture?” the victim asked.

“Feed you face, f—–” the suspect shouted back. Another woman with her chimed in, apparently asking the partner: “Why you with that f—–?”

An argument erupted, and the two women, joined by three others plus a man, attacked Frankelly, police said.

His partner tried to intervene, but the victim was repeatedly punched.

The pair managed to get off the train at the next stop, West 96th St., and police were called.

The victim’s left eye was swollen shut, with a cut above the socket. He was treated at St. Luke’s Hospital.

He refused comment.

“Everyone was watching — no one helped us. That was a very scary situation for us,” the partner said.

The couple has been interviewed by the Hate Crime Task Force, but no arrests have been made at this time.
