Duboce Triangle couple seeks help after attack

Dean and Mary Ayers

Dean and Mary Ayers

A queer Duboce Triangle couple are looking for help after they were recently attacked near their home.

Friends of Dean and Mary Ayers have started a Gofundme campaign to help pay for medical expenses and other costs. As of Thursday, almost $18,000 toward the $25,000 goal had been raised.

In interview, Dean Ayers said four men approached him and his wife Tuesday, February 23 on Sanchez Street. One of the men said he wanted to rape her and then assaulted the couple. Both were injured, and Mary Ayers is still in the hospital.

Video surveillance footage has been obtained, but police Sergeant Robert Terry said no arrests have been made yet. It does not appear the incident was related to the couple’s LGBT status.

The Bay Area Reporter will have more on this story in the Thursday, March 10 edition.

Anyone with information in the case can contact the SFPD anonymous tip line at (415) 575- 4444. People may also text a tip to TIP411. Type SFPD in the subject line. The incident number is 160160871.
