A Chicago man was arraigned Friday morning on two counts of felony hate crimes, as well as two counts each of robbery and assault, after allegedly participating in the beatings of two Austin women because they are gay.
Terry Glover, 24, pled not guilty to the charges. He remains in jail, where he is being held on a $1 million bond. He is accused of beating and robbing the two women while he yelled anti-gay slurs July 7. The incident took place on the 0-100 block of North Leclaire Avenue.
Glover's next hearing is set for mid-October. No trial date has yet been set.
The victims have not wished to make their identity known in the media. One told Chicago Tribune that the harassment began after they passed Glover a few times on the street. He allegedly started following them, all the while yelling slurs, and was then joined by about nine accomplices. The victims ended up pinned to the side of a car. One had her shirt ripped off and both lost their shoes, phones and cash.
The other assailants remain at large.
