PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The three young adults charged with beating a gay couple during a night out on the town in Philadelphia have been released on bail.

KYW-TV (http://cbsloc.al/1vgPGmm ) reports that 24-year-old Philip Williams of Warminster, 24-year-old Kathryn Knott of Southampton and 26-year-old Kevin Harrigan of Warrington left the police department's Central Detectives division at about 3:30 a.m. Thursday.

Court documents indicate that Williams and Harrigan posted $75,000 bail and Knott posted $50,000 bail. The three are charged with criminal conspiracy and two counts each of aggravated and simple assault, and reckless endangerment.

The couple told police a group hurled gay slurs and beat them when the two parties passed on a street Sept. 11. One man suffered serious facial injuries, including an orbital fracture, and had his jaw wired.
