St. Louis County police in Minnesota released a 19-year-old suspect accused of participating in a brutal attack on a young gay man at an abandoned gravel pit near Duluth.
Police say they intend to bring charges soon, but were faced with a deadline in which they had to either bring charges or release the teenager. Police officials say they want to make sure they bring the correct bias charges against the suspect and are conducting more interviews.
The alleged crime involved 21-year-old Max Pelofske who, last Saturday, told a group of six other young men that he was gay. Pelofske says he was then attacked by them, with a beer can hurled at him before being punched and kicked. Police intend to interview the other men who allegedly attacked Pelofske. Read more here.
