BREAKING: Philadelphia DA To Charge Three Attackers In Mob Gay-Bashing

Philadelphia's ABC affiliate reports:
Three people will be charged in an attack on a gay couple in Center City Philadelphia. The accused are Philip Williams, 24, Kevin Harrigan, 26, and Katherine Knott, 24, all of Bucks County, according to the Philadelphia District Attorney's Office. Arrest warrants have been approved for the three suspects. Each will be charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and criminal conspiracy.

The incident unfolded at 10:45 p.m. on Thursday, September 11th. "This vicious attack shocked the entire country. An assault on people because of their sexual orientation has no place in Philadelphia," DA Seth Williams said in a statement. The two victims suffered serious facial injuries. They claim they were targeted for being homosexual and savagely beaten. Persons of interest being interviewed by police last week claimed it was a mutual fight, sources told Action News.
It appears that the basketball coach is not being charged. (Tipped by JMG reader Paul)
