An anonymous Twitter user became a hero this week by solving the case of a brutal, homophobic gang assault on a young gay couple in Philadelphia that left the two hospitalized.
On the night of Sept. 11, the couple was cornered, verbally harassed and beaten into the hospital by a dozen or so “young, clean-cut” and apparently very drunk white men and women in their early 20s. As the pair were attacked, the gang repeatedly jeered them as “faggots” and even stole one of their wallets. NBC News reports that the couple’s resulting injuries were gruesome
Twitter to the rescue
