Police on eastern Long Island say they have arrested three people on aggravated harassment charges after they kicked and hit a victim while uttering anti-gay remarks. Authorities say 21-year-old Nora Mitzner, 25-year-old Lindsay McBeth and 20-year-old Selwyn Icangelo were awaiting arraignment in First District Court in Central Islip. It was not immediately known if they were represented by attorneys.

Suffolk County Police say they responded to a 911 call of a fight Monday night in Mastic Beach. They say the trio kicked, hit and pushed the unidentified woman while making remarks about her sexual orientation.

A police spokesman said the victim's injuries were not serious enough to merit assault as a hate crime charges.
