Cops Nab Another Gang Suspect in Bronx Gay-Bashing

Police have arrested an eleventh suspect in a case where gang members kidnapped and beat three gay men in the Bronx.

Police say 26-year-old Luis Garcia is one of the ringleaders of the "Latin King Goonies" (no relation to the Latin Kings gang) who are accused of brutally abusing three gay men -- two 17-year-olds and a 30-year-old -- by sodomizing them with the toilet plungers and baseball bats, cutting them with box-cutters, and beating them with their fists and chains.

The suspects are expected to be back in court next week and prosecutors tell the Daily News they're ready to seek indictments from a grand jury.
