The incident was reported late Friday night at Las Perlas bar on East 6th Street, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Police said they filed a hate crime report and the department was investigating the incident.
The group of co-workers were celebrating the LGBTQ community at DTLA Proud Festival before they say they became victims of a hate crime at the bar.
