Suspect in gang rape of teen won’t be charged

October 31, 2009


— Authorities say one of six suspects arrested in connection with the gang rape of a 15-year-old girl outside Richmond High School’s homecoming dance will not be charged.

Richmond Police Lt. Mark Gagan says prosecutors will not file criminal charges against 21-year-old Salvador Rodriguez because of insufficient evidence.

Prosecutors have filed charges against four other suspects in the case. A fifth suspect, 18-year-old Jose Carlos Montano of San Pablo, remains in custody on $1.3 million bail. He has yet to be charged.
