A $25,000 reward will go to whoever can help police find the person responsible for an apparent anti-gay hate crime in Echo Park.

The L.A. City Council approved the reward Wednesday for information that could lead to an arrest in a stabbing caught on video.

The attacker, who yelled an anti-gay slur, stabbed one man in the back. When someone tried to chase him down, he stabbed that second man as well. Both victims are OK.

If you have information, call LAPD detectives at (323) 344-5751.
