THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — [UPDATE: See below.] 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.
I pieced this together from several sources — some of them containing varying degrees of errors.
The McDonald’s where the attack took place is supposedly crime-plagued with a number of recently occurring attacks, including one supposedly caused by an employee.
NYPD says the slashing victim was taken to a hospital and survived. The suspect, however, got away. The NYPD also says they’re investingating it as a hate crime and has released a photo of the suspect.
The police is looking for the suspect: between the ages of 35 and 40, 5’10” and between 300 and 350 pounds. Call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
There has been an arrest in the case: https://lexiecannes.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/man-arrested-in-nyc-mcdonalds-knifing-of-trans-womans-partner/
