2 suspected of beating, forced disrobing of woman

Posted: Updated:

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) — One woman is in police custody, and another one remains at large on suspicion of beating a woman in Fresno and forcing her to strip.

Video of the assault was posted on Facebook and went viral on social media before it was taken down.

Sgt. Paul Cerventes told the Fresno Bee hat police pressure and media coverage of the video led 29-year-old Lindsey Starkey to surrender to police on Monday.

The main suspect in the assault — 21-year-old Destiny Rico — has not been located.

Rico and Starkey are accused of assaulting the victim on Sept. 6. Police said the attack was gang-related.

Investigators served several warrants to find other suspects, including the juvenile who posted the video online.
