Man convicted in attack during last year’s San Francisco Pride

Friday, February 14, 2014

SAN FRANCISCO — San Francisco prosecutors say a man has been found guilty for an attack on a woman during the city’s gay pride festivities that was caught on surveillance video.

The district attorney’s office tells the San Francisco Chronicle that 23-year-old Christopher Porter-Bailey of Oakland was convicted of robbery, assault and battery Thursday.

He could get eight years in prison at sentencing. He’s scheduled to return to court Friday.

Police said surveillance video of the June 30 attack showed Porter-Bailey kick the woman in the face while she is on the ground, seemingly for no reason. The woman had been robbed of her purse and cellphone by a group of suspects, and the kick to the head knocked her unconscious.

Caution, this video is disturbing:

The 28-year-old victim did not suffer lasting injuries from the attack.

  1. I love how two full grown men were obviously watching this woman get attacked and did nothing, but sat there with their hands in their pockets… Christ.

  10. I agree how can u just walk by?? I never understand the kicking in head n face while someone is down!! How cowardly of u! There should be a mandatory 1 year in prison for kicking someone like that. It’s attempt of murder as it can kill someone..

  14. Two things worth noticing here:

    1) Gay or not, you *never* hit a woman.

    2) Those bystanders are just as guilty as the attacker because they just kept walking and didn’t do anything.
