Two men in a black BMW yelled anti-gay slurs at a pedestrian and threw eggs at him in what Wilton Manors Police Department say may be a hate crime. 

Police were notified shortly before midnight Monday of the incident in the heart of the town’s arts and entertainment district on Wilton Drive.  

If established to be a hate crime, penalties could be enhanced up to a felony offense punishable by up to 15 years in prison, said Jennifer Bickhardt, a police spokeswoman. 

A similar unsolved incident happened last year, she said.
