A lesbian couple was attacked and robbed by a group of men in Chicago on Saturday night, and police are calling it a hate crime, according to the Chicago Tribune.

As many as ten men punched and kicked the women, pressing them up against a car in the South Austen neighborhood of Chicago’s West Side, and hurling antigay slurs. They were allegedly laughing as they assaulted the couple.

Only one of the men, Terry Glover, 24, has been arrested and charged with felony counts of hate crime and robbery. Police are still searching for the other assailants.
