LAPD says ‘Western Bandit’ killed trans woman one year ago

LAPD says the “Western Bandit” killed trans woman Cassidy in 2011

THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — The LAPD has tied the death of trans woman Cassidy who was killed exactly one year ago on West Lexington Avenue in Hollywood during an armed robbery to a violent suspect who has terrorized the area with a string of robberies. The suspect is dubbed as the “Western Bandit” after the area he has conducted most of the robberies in.

The same night Cassidy was killed, another trans woman was shot at on Santa Monica Blvd., but no one was injured. The LAPD said the guy is quick to use his gun and that three of his robbery victims were transgender.
The LAPD said to the LA Times: “We have no evidence to suggest that this guy is specifically targeting people because of their sexual orientation, however we are greatly concerned.”

The Western Bandit is a black male, approx. 5-10′, stocky, and believed to be between 35 and 40 years old.

If you have info, call the LAPD at (877) LAPD-247 ([877] 527-3247).

  1. Better late than never. I hope they get him!

  2. “We have no evidence to suggest that this guy is specifically targeting people because of their sexual orientation, however we are greatly concerned.”

    Someone needs to point out being Transgender does not equal sexual orientation.

    Besides that, it seems this man is targeting women in the least and possibly Transwomen in particular.
