THE BRONX - Three more suspects were indicted by a grand jury tonight in connection to the alleged anti-gay attacks in University Heights.

Elmer Confresi, Nelson Falu and Ruddy Vargas have been formally charged with robbing, beating and sodomizing three gay men on Oct. 1. Four other suspects have already been indicted.

Officials say the men are members the Latin King Goonies and went on an attack after learning that a 17-year-old gang recruit had sex with a man.

Charges for four of the men arrested were dropped due to a lack of evidence.
