NYPD Officers Ignored Anti-Gay Hate Crime, Says Alleged Victim

Omar Villalobos nypd hate crime

Manhattan resident Omar Villalobos says six New York police officers who were working on 42nd street did nothing after he was punched by a man who used an anti-gay slur before the alleged attack.

The NY Post reports:
“He had been staring at us, really giving us a very hateful glare,” Villalobos remembered. “I was telling Natasha that I had never seen someone look so hateful. In my head, I very much dismissed it, though, because there’s crazy people in New York all the time who can’t control their facial expressions. But then out of nowhere, we just heard mumbling and then the word fa**ot.’ As I go to respond, he punches me right on my forehead, splitting me open right above my right eyebrow.”

Villalobos claimed that after the assault, his attacker — a blonde-haired, blue-eyed man who appeared to have been in his 40s — didn’t even try to escape.

“Natasha was trying to get the cops to arrest him, and then two bystanders even came over to try and get [the officers] to help, and one of the cops goes, “All they’re going to do is put him in the mental clinic and then he’ll be back on the street in no time.’”

According to the Post, the NYPD Hate Crimes unit has launched an investigation of the incident but not the reaction of the police officers, who, according to Villalobos “said they were there for terrorist attacks, not homeless people.”

Villalobos required six stitches according to the report.

Ryan Lochte Dropped By Ralph Lauren

Shortly after Speedo USA made its announcement, Ralph Lauren followed suit.  

“Ralph Lauren continues to proudly sponsor the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Team and the values that its athletes embody,” said the company, which provided the attire worn by the American team at the opening and closing ceremonies. “Ralph Lauren’s endorsement agreement with Ryan Lochte was specifically in support of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and the company will not be renewing his contract.”

Ryan Lochte Dropped By Speedo

Ryan Lochte just lost one of his biggest sponsors -- with Speedo pulling the plug on the swimmer in the wake of his embarrassing Rio bathroom debacle.

The mankini company just issued a statement saying, "While we have enjoyed a winning relationship with Ryan for over a decade and he has been an important member of the Speedo team, we cannot condone behavior that is counter to the values this brand has long stood for."

"We appreciate his many achievements and hope he moves forward and learns from this experience."

Speedo also says it will donate a $50,000 portion of Lochte's fees to Save The Children -- a charity which will use the money to benefit children in need in Brazil.(TMZ)
