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

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.
