He faces multiple charges of hate crimes and assault.

Police have arrested the man they believe perpetrated a brutal homophobic hate crime over the weekend in New York City. Brandon McNamara, 25, was connected to the crime after the NYPD circulated a photo take of him near the scene early Sunday morning.

McNamara allegedly attacked two men as they left the popular gay bar Metropolitan in Brooklyn's Williamsburg neighborhood. Both men were rendered unconscious after one, 34, was punched in the face, and the other, 29, was thrown against a tree. The two were taken to a hospital and treated for a fractured shoulder and broken finger.

"McNamara faces tow counts each of hate crime assault in the second degree, second-degree assault, and first and second-degree hate crimes,' reports PIX11. "The suspect was first pictured in an image circulated by police after the attack. Police have confirmed the man in the picture is McNamara."

McNamara was silent as he was escorted out of the NYPD's 7th precinct, and one Twitter use took it upon themselves to make sure the suspect's employer was notified about his weekend activities.
