An anti-gay slur led to an altercation between two Cutchogue brothers and two New York City men at a Greenport Village bar and restaurant Saturday night, according to a Southold Town police report.

The fight began when one of the brothers used a gay slur after bumping into the two out-of-town regulars at the Front Street bar shortly before midnight, police said.

One of the Cutchogue men was later found with a cut nose and swollen lip that he told police resulted from being punched by one of the men from the city. The other brother went outside and began punching the glass window soon after the fight, but no damage was reported, according to police.

The report states that the two brothers expressed an interest in pressing charges, but no arrests had been made as of Tuesday morning.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
