Published: October 8, 2010

Seven young men in the Bronx have been arrested after, investigators said, the men made it their mission to find and attack two teenagers and a 30-year-old man they suspected of being gay, the police said.

The young men, who called themselves the Latin King Goonies and who range from 16 to 23 years old, were rounded up Thursday and Friday and charged in a series of attacks on the victims in an unoccupied apartment, the police said. Two more suspects are still being sought, they said.

The spree began last Sunday about 3:30 a.m., when the crew members snatched a 17-year-old off the street, took him to the apartment at 1910 Osbourne Place in Morris Heights and essentially sought to force him to confess to having performed sex acts with a 30-year-old man, one official said.
