SAN DIEGO (AP) — Four Camp Pendleton Marines have been arrested for investigation of the beating of a gay man outside a bar in Long Beach.
Marine Corps spokesman Maj. Manuel J. Delarosa said Wednesday the Marines are out on bail and have returned to their units.
Long Beach police spokeswoman Lisa Massacani says the beating happened Monday around 2 a.m. She says the victim was treated at a hospital. Two others who tried to help the victim suffered minor injuries.
Massacani says the case is being investigated as a possible hate crime.
Delarosa called it an isolated case and said hate crimes will not be tolerated. He says the military is conducting its own investigation.
Arrested were Lance Cpl. Lewis Serna; Pfc. Thomas Pentek; Pfc. Sean Miller and Lance Cpl. John O’Leary.
