Back in 2008 we reported on the horrific carjacking and gang rape of a lesbian in Richmond, California. The victim was walking to her apartment when she was struck with a flashlight, robbed, and ordered to take her clothes off, forced into her car, driven seven blocks and then sexually assaulted. She was targeted because she is a lesbian.
