3 people attacked with eggs, bricks on way to protest NYC drag queen event: cops

Three people were attacked with a brick and eggs, then robbed on their way to protest a drag queen event near Lincoln Center Saturday morning, cops said. 

The three were walking southbound on Amsterdam Avenue at 11:06 a.m. when six people — wearing black hooded shirts and black masks — attacked them from behind. 

One of the victims, a 31-year-old man, was punched and kicked while the assailants snatched his coat, phone, and a sign, according to authorities. 

An attacker, meanwhile, picked up a 47-year-old woman and threw her to the ground as the attacker tried to steal her bag.

The third friend, a 27-year-old man, was pushed and hit as he “was trying to defend his friend,” cops said.

The masked thieves then chucked a brick and eggs at the protesters, but missed, according to police.

No arrests have been made. The attackers were described as a woman and five men, all wearing black hoodies and masks.
