Bronx Assemblywoman Carmen Arroyo is urging the public to help police find the attackers.

ARROYO: This crime is not against one individual. It's a crime against a community of people that are working hard to make a big contribution to this society.

REPORTER: Authorities say one of the four attackers made anti-gay comments before hitting one of the brothers over the head with a bottle.

That man is in the hospital in critical condition. The other brother escaped. Police are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
