Teens Charged in Antigay Attack Near Denver

Two teenagers are being charged with a bias-motivated assault after allegedly yelling antigay slurs at a man before chasing and assaulting him last month in a suburb of Denver.

Joseph Murphy, 18, and Zachary Kocman, 19, were driving in the Denver suburb of Arvada on July 18 when they began yelling at an unidentified 25-year-old man, according to the district attorney, who says the men then got out of the vehicle, chased the victim for several blocks, and beat him up, all in the middle of the day.
