2 Ordered To Stand Trial In Richmond Lesbian Gang Rape

RICHMOND (CBS/AP) — Two men are facing trial in the gang rape of a lesbian in Richmond.

A judge ordered 34-year-old Humberto Salvador and 18-year-old Robert Ortiz to stand trial on kidnapping, gang rape and other charges at the end of a preliminary hearing on Wednesday.

Salvador is also facing a hate crime enhancement for allegedly referring to the woman’s sexual orientation during the December 2008 attack. The two men are suspected gang members.

Authorities said the woman was gang raped on the street outside her home and then again under the stairs of an apartment complex, where she was left naked.

A third man, 19-year-old Darrell Albert Hodges, pleaded guilty last month to one count of oral copulation in concert. A fourth defendant, 24-year-old Josue Gonzalez, has pleaded guilty to carjacking and robbery.
