DAVIS, Calif. —

Bail has been raised nearly sevenfold to $520,000 for a teenager facing hate crime allegations in the brutal beating of a Northern California man.

Prosecutors on Wednesday detailed the injuries, including a fractured skull, suffered by Lawrence "Mikey" Partida in the early hours of March 10 in Davis.

The Sacramento Bee reports ( http://bit.ly/10fYoiy) 19-year-old Clayton Daniel Garzon is accused of using anti-gay slurs during the alleged attack.

Garzon appeared in Yolo Superior Court on felony battery and threat charges with hate crime enhancements.

Prosecutors argued Garzon is a danger to the community and a risk to flee.

Partida's friends, family and supporters gathered outside the courthouse, some wearing T-shirts that read, "Stop Hate. Justice for Mikey."

A preliminary hearing in the case is set for April 26.
