A Central Islip man used anti-gay epithets while beating and kicking two men early Friday morning, then told police he would do it again, Suffolk authorities said.
Wenzola Rountree, 31, was charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment after he approached three openly gay men walking out of a friend’s home on Earle Street in Central Islip at 1:15 a.m. Friday, said Det. Sgt. Robert Reecks of the Hate Crimes Unit.
