The police continue to hunt the suspects linked to a midtown assault of a gay couple.

The NYPD said it is seeking four men who allegedly used gay slurs while assaulting two men as they walked near 35th Street and 8th Avenue on Sunday night. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said three of the men wore Knicks paraphernalia and released surveillance pictures of one of the suspects Tuesday.

The victims, Nick Porto, 27, and his partner Kevin Atkins, 22, were taken to Bellevue Hospital after suffering minor injuries after being beaten on the ground.

“There is no word to describe the pain,” Porto told reporters Tuesday.
