According to police in Des Moines, Iowa, 19-year-olds Jassimen Dobbins and Angela Wade are each being held on $42,250 bond after robbing and beating a 16-year-old gay male teen (whom police haven’t identified because of his age). The two reportedly hit him over the head with a bottle and stabbed him with a fork while taunting him with homophobic slurs.
According to the Des Moines Register, the two women “stole $5 in cash, an ATM card and a driver’s license before setting fire to the victim’s bag.” The women also admitted to police that they knew the victim was gay before the incident.
