Two women were attacked on Pink Saturday in what police are saying is a possible hate crime.

At about 5:33 p.m., a 24-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman were walking south along Ninth Street near Mission Street when a group of six men approached and began kicking and punching them.

One of the suspects made a homophobic comment before fleeing the scene, says Officer Albie Esparza.

Both the victims were taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where one was treated for a broken wrist and the other was treated for a head abrasion.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call SFPD at (415) 575-4444.
