RICHMOND — Three suspects have been arrested in connection to the rape of a 15-year-old girl outside of her high school homecoming dance Saturday, bringing the total number of people in custody in the case to five.
A 21-year-old man, Salvador Rodriguez, was arrested near the corner of 26th Street and Humphrey Avenue at 7:40 p.m., Richmond police Lt. Mike Gormley said. Shortly after 10 p.m., police arrested a 16-year-old boy in San Pablo.
A 17-year-old boy was not at home when police searched his Pinole home, but once he got word that he was being sought, he turned himself in to police, Gormley said.
Police served several search warrants prior to the arrests, he said.
Detectives continuedwall-to-wall interviews of students and former students, having already arrested a 15-year-old boy and 19-year-old Manuel Ortega.
The investigation into the two-hour rape continued, as police leafleted the campus to advertise a $20,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of anyone who participated.
Police will meet with prosecutors Wednesday to discuss charges for those in custody.
