Man arrested in NYC McDonald’s knifing of trans woman’s partner

Keith Patron arrested for the knifing of trans woman’s partner

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — A Bronx man whose surveillance photo was distributed by NYPD police following a brutal knifing of Jamar McLeod, a man defending his trans woman partner at a NYC McDonald’s, has been arrested. Police identified him as Keith Patron, 44, of Morrisania. There is not much additional details from the police at this time.

I reported on the story 2 days ago: “Yup, another vicious attack resulting from a trans person’s use of a public bathroom. This time it was the trans woman’s boyfriend who was knifed by an irate customer at a Greenwich Village (NYC) McDonald’s after he became angry when trans woman Jalisa “JoJo” Griffen attempted to use the women’s restroom. A melee with anti-gay slurs ensued and Griffen’s boyfriend was cut severely in the face by a razor.

The arrested man’s sister is reportedly giving a different account of what happened. She refused to give her name but she supposedly said it was self-defense: “Someone kneed him and hurt him and he was trying to defend himself. The girlfriend was edging on the boyfriend to defend her.”

I’m not so sure about the reliability of this report and/or the sister, but you can read about it here:  http://www.dnainfo.com/new-york/20120925/greenwich-village/family-of-alleged-anti-lgbt-mcdonalds-slasher-disputes-bias-charge#ixzz27Xb6KRVS
