Bail For Brothers Suspected of Mission District Stabbing Set at $3M

A San Francisco Superior Court judge set bail at $3 million a piece today for two San Francisco brothers arrested Sunday in connection with the stabbing death of a man last month in the Mission District.

Luis Gutierrez, 21, and Javier Gutierrez, 26, appeared together in court this afternoon.

The two brothers were arrested Sunday on suspicion of murder, police said.

The two brothers allegedly stabbed 20-year-old Ronnie Goodman to death on the corner of Capp and 24th streets, about a block from the 24th Street BART station, at 11:49 p.m. on Sept. 9, police said.

Goodman was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died from his wounds, police said.

Both brothers are facing charges of murder, torture, assault with a deadly weapon and use of a deadly weapon, according to Max Szabo, a spokesman for the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office.

Javier Gutierrez is additionally charged with assault with a less-lethal weapon, and assault with force likely to cause great bodily injury, according to Szabo.

Police released video footage from a surveillance camera showing two males running down a graffiti-covered street after the stabbing, and received numerous calls from the public, police said.

Judge Tracie Brown set bail at $3 million each after stating that the brothers are suspected of a “willful and deliberate” attack on the victim.

The two brothers are scheduled to enter a plea on Friday at 9 a.m., according to Brown.
