1st gay couple married at West Point are attacked in NYC

NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Police Department is investigating a bias attack on two men who were the first gay couple to be married at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Police say it happened at a food store while Daniel and Larry Lennox-Choate were shopping Sunday afternoon. They say a man began shouting anti-gay obscenities at the couple and punched Daniel Lennox-Choate in the face.

The assailant fled on a bicycle after Larry Lennox-Choate said he intervened.

In a post on his Facebook page, Larry Lennox-Choate says it's difficult to believe that in 2015 they have to deal with anti-gay hate.

No arrests have been made.

The two married in 2013.
