MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) - Two men and a teenager have been charged
in the alleged gang rape of a San Francisco Bay area lesbian.
Prosecutors on Tuesday charged 31-year-old Humberto Hernandez
Salvador and 21-year-old Josue Gonzalez with kidnapping, carjacking
and gang rape in the attack last month in Richmond.
The pair did not enter pleas when they appeared in Contra Costa County Superior Court.
Darrell Hodges, who is 16, was charged as an adult with similar offenses Monday. A 15-year-old boy whose name has not been released was also arrested last week on suspicion of participating in the attack.
Authorities say the 28-year-old woman was taunted for being a lesbian during the 45-minute assault, which has sparked protests and support for the victim.
