For those who have not yet heard, there’s an update in the case of the lesbian woman who was gang-raped in a suspected hate crime in the San Francisco Bay area. All four of the suspects in the case have been arrested.
Two men and two teenagers have been arrested on suspicion of gang-raping a woman last month in the San Francisco Bay area while taunting her for being a lesbian, the police said. Those arrested were Humberto H. Salvador, 31; Josue Gonzalez, 21; and a 15- and a 16-year-old whose names were not released. Detectives say the 28-year-old victim was attacked Dec. 13 after she got out of her car, which bore a rainbow gay pride sticker.
Though there’s definitely no such thing as “good news” in a case like this, it’s certainly what many of us were hoping for. The police at least care enough to have done a real investigation and to make some arrests. All we can hope for now is a successful prosecution. That, along with our continued hopes for a safe physical and emotional recovery for the woman who survived the attack.
