MIAMI BEACH: Assault Suspects Charged With Felony Battery, Released On Bail, Hate Crime Charges Pending

Miami’s ABC affiliate reports:

Four men have been released on bond after being arrested and accused of beating a gay couple. The four men — who police identified as 20-year-old Luis Alonso, 21-year-old Adonis Diaz, 21-year-old Juan C. Lopez and 21-year-old Pablo Reinaldo Romo — bonded out of jail on Wednesday. According to a Miami Beach Police spokesperson, all four men are facing aggravated battery felony charges. Each of the four men were being held on $7,500 bond. The State Attorney’s Office is still deciding whether the suspects will be charged with a hate crime.

The attack is getting media coverage in South America in part because one of the victims is a Colombian immigrant.
