2nd Suspect Arrested in NY Hate Crime


The second suspect in a brutal Queens, N.Y., hate crime that left a gay man in a medically induced coma was arrested in Virginia on Tuesday.

Daniel Rodriguez, 21, was tracked down through tips, and will be extradited to New York, according to The New York Times.

"On Tuesday, the United States Marshals Service arrested one of the suspects, Daniel Rodriguez, 21, in Norfolk, Va. Mr. Rodriguez, who has family in the area, was located through tips to the New York Police Department's Real Time Crime Center, the police said. Charges in New York were pending, the police said, but it was unclear Tuesday night precisely when Mr. Rodriguez would be extradited," reported The New York Times.

The attack early Friday morning in College Point left Jack Price, who is now in fair condition, hospitalized with a broken jaw, fractured ribs, and a lacerated spleen. The suspects yelled antigay slurs and beat him in the attack, which occurred outside a deli and was captured on video.

Another suspect, Daniel Aleman, 26, was arrested over the weekend. He is charged with assault and aggravated assault as a hate crime.
