Police Offer $10,000 Reward for Assailants in Lesbian Gang Rape
Richmond, CA police are offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the capture of the assailants in the horrific and brutal gang rape of a lesbian I posted about yesterday.
"Police described the first suspect, believed to be the group leader, as a Latino man in his 30s, who stands 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds, and has black hair, brown eyes and a mustache. The second suspect is described as an African American man in his early 20s, about 5 feet 10 inches, 170 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He is known by the nickname 'Blu,' police said. The third suspect is described as Latino, 18 to 20 years old, who is nicknamed "Pato." The fourth suspect is described only as a Latino man 18 to 20 years old."
The Mercury News: "Along with the brutality of the assault, the fact that the woman may have been targeted because she was gay has unnerved the officers assigned to the case, [Richmond police Lt. Mark] Gagan said. They went public with some details about the case over the weekend hoping it would motivate witnesses to come forward with information about the suspects, who have not been apprehended. 'It just pushes it beyond fathomable,' he said. 'The level of trauma, physical and emotional, this victim has suffered is extreme.'"
