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 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 ( 527-3247).

“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.
Yes, its called gender identity not sexual orientation.
I believe the LAPD is going to give their spokesperson a little refresher course, soon.
There’s this from a trans woman who lived in the area. Good read: http://transprov.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/santa-monica-boulevard-through-hollwood/
