MARTINEZ, Calif. (AP) — A 36-year-old man has been convicted of orchestrating the gang rape of a Northern California woman who was targeted in part because she is a lesbian.

The Contra Costa Times reported Wednesday that jurors deliberated for about eight hours before finding Richmond resident Humberto Salvador guilty of rape in concert, kidnapping and other charges.

The jury's verdicts included hate crime enhancements because of the role the victim's sexual orientation played in the attack on a Richmond street five years ago.

The victim, now 33, testified earlier this month that during the assault Salvador kept asking if she liked men.

She also said that he encouraged two teenagers who were with him to rape her as well before they left her naked and bleeding in the carport of an abandoned building.
