NY Police: 10th man arrested in NYC anti-gay beatings

NEW YORK — A 10th person was arrested in New York Tuesday in several brutal attacks that authorities believe were touched off because gang members thought one of their recruits was gay.
Jose Dominguez, 22, surrendered to detectives and was arrested on charges of assault, unlawful imprisonment and aggravated harassment as hate crimes. It wasn't clear if he had an attorney. No one answered the phone at an address provided by police.
A suspect who was arrested Monday on similar charges, Ruddy Vargas-Perez, was awaiting a court appearance Tuesday afternoon.
Police say Dominguez and Vargas-Perez participated in at least one of the attacks on two teens and two men on Oct. 3.
