Two men were cut and slashed in a gay-bashing Sunday morning outside of a Brooklyn chicken spot, police say.

The first victim, a 34-year-old man, told police that while inside Crown Fried Chicken on Fulton Street, another customer began yelling anti-gay comments at him.

The victim told police that he exited the restaurant but the suspect followed him and slashed him on the left side of his face while uttering gay slurs.

The second victim, who was trying to avoid the confrontation, attempted to enter the restaurant with a friend but the suspect attacked him next, stabbing him twice in the torso and once in the shoulder. He says the suspect was still shouting anti-gay statements at him during the assault.

The men had to be treated at area hospitals for their injuries.

Both victims had been spending time at popular bar The Langston earlier that evening but police say it is unclear if they knew each other previously.
