SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department needs your help solving a possible hate crime in Midtown.
In the early morning hours of Aug. 17, two men were walking through a parking lot at 19th and J Streets when they say they were attacked by a group of five others who shouted anti-gay slurs.
"We're working with the businesses, we're working with the LGBT community out there -- and they're pretty plugged in, very good network -- but we need some leads," Chief Sam Somers said.
Somers says the suspect descriptions are vague, three Hispanic and two black males who took off in a light-colored, older-model, four-door vehicle. He says the area isn't getting any more dangerous, but it's always good to be aware.
