(EDGE) Two women were the victims of anti-lesbian and racist violence in the early hours of Monday morning when a pair of men threw glass bottles at them after having their advances rejected.

The New York Daily News reports that Michael Bailey, 23, and Daquan Burns, 24, allegedly attacked two 23-year old women with glass bottles while yelling "They are fucking dykes."

The News points out that although all of the suspects and victims are African American, racial epithets were yelled as well.

Burns has a rap sheet that includes prison time for a 2011 attempted robbery conviction. He was out on parole at the time of Monday's attack.

Bailey may be facing more than an assault charge. According to prosecutors, he was carrying marijuana and other people's credit cards when he was busted by police.

Both Burns and Bailey have been charged with felony assault as a hate crime.
