WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Sheriff’s officials say they are seeking three suspects who shouted slurs about the race and sexual orientation of a man in West Hollywood before punching him and leaving him unconscious.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement Wednesday that the victim, who is black, was crossing Santa Monica Boulevard in front of a white Audi Q4 and as he neared the curb, the men inside began shouting slurs at him.

The suspects got out of the car and approached the victim and when he stopped to address them he was punched in the face. He fell, hit his head and was knocked unconscious. Paramedics took him to a local hospital.

The suspects, described in a sheriff’s statement as three Hispanic men, fled and have not been found.
