UPDATE: Gay-Bashing Suspects Surrender to Police
According to CBS Philly, the three suspects facing charges in the gay-bashing in Center City on September 11th turned themselves into the police this morning. The suspects are 24-year-old Philip Williams, 26-year-old Kevin Harrigan, and 24-year-old Kathryn Knott, each charged with two counts of aggravated assault, two counts of simple assault, two counts of recklessly endangering another person (REAP), and one count of criminal conspiracy.

The victims, who wish to be unidentified, released a statement to media, saying, “Thank you to the community for their help and support, as well as the Detectives who did a great job gathering details. We are thankful the DA is working so hard to make sure this doesn’t happen again in Philadelphia.”
