Police are asking for the public's help tracking down three people wanted for a possible bias attack inside a popular Astoria diner.

Investigators from the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force are looking for three people seen in the above surveillance photo.

Police say on the morning of January 8, the suspects got into an argument with a 30-year-old woman and a 32-year-old man at the Neptune Diner on Astoria Boulevard.

They allegedly shouted anti-gay remarks at the victims, before hurling plates at them.

The man and the woman were taken to the hospital and were treated for head wounds.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
