The man police say assaulted two people on E Pike last Saturday night because they were homosexual is being charged with malicious harassment, the state’s hate crime statute.
34-year-old Raven Brealan also faces a charge of fourth degree assault in the Saturday night incident.
Police say Brealan told an officer he struck one of the men because “when he was flirting with the victim earlier in the evening he found out the victim had a penis.”
Brealan’s criminal record, according to prosecutors, is deep:
Brealan will appear in court in early October to enter his plea.
