ROCKVILLE, Md. (AP) - Montgomery County detectives are investigating an assault at an Olney restaurant as a hate crime.

Police say the incident occurred just before 3 a.m. at the Greene Turtle bar and restaurant. Police say a man who was with a large group walked up to another group of people, poured water on two of them and called them a derogatory name in reference to their sexual orientation.

The groups then went outside of the restaurant and got into a fight. Two men were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police have identified the man who poured water, and are asking for the public’s help in identifying more people involved in the incident.
