According to a police press release, the accused made disparaging remarks about the victims because of their sexual orientation. After the assault, the suspects allegedly took off fleeing.

A witness claimed that the attack was so savage that she initially believed the culprits would actually murder the victims.

Injuries that weren’t life-threatening were treated on the victims at nearby hospitals.
