UPDATE: Police Wrap Up Investigation Into Center City Gay-Bashing


The Inquirer reports that Philadelphia police have wrapped up its investigation into the attack that happened on September 11th on 16th and Chancellor streets. More:

Philadelphia police have finished their investigation of the assault of a gay couple in Center City and submitted an investigative file to the District Attorney’s Office, which will determine whether to press charges, Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey said Monday.

“We feel that there is sufficient evidence to have charges placed against some of the individuals there,” Ramsey said.

That decision, however, is up to prosecutors.

He said police were set to meet with prosecutors Monday afternoon to present the investigative file.

I reached out to the DA’s office for comment, but was told the office can’t make further comments unless charges are filed. Stay tuned to G Philly for updates.
