Three of the suspects implicated in Philadelphia hate crime that took place earlier this month have turned themselves in to police, officials say. 

On Sep. 11, a group of up to a dozen attacked a gay couple in the city's Rittenhouse Square section. Members of the group were identified thanks to the social media sleuthing of @FanSince09, and police informed the Philadelphia Inquirer that only the suspects who were involved in the fight would be charged.

The District Attorney's office identified three suspects earlier this week. Kevin Harrigan, 26, turned himself in this morning along with Kathryn Knott and Philip Williams, both 24. Though the aggressors will not be charged with hate crimes because there aren't corresponding laws in Pennsylvania, each has been charged with two counts of simple and aggravated assault in addition to other charges.
