THE GUERRILLA ANGEL REPORT — The Los Angeles Police Department says they believe the “Western Bandit,” a violent serial robber who also killed a trans woman named Cassidy in November 2011, has resurfaced, pulling an armed robbery on Jan. 8th and an attempted robbery that same day.

I wrote the following two months ago: “The LAPD has tied the death of trans woman Cassidy who was killed [Nov. 2011] 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.” More about that murder:

Los Angeles police Lt. John Radtke says the Western Bandit is ‘very violent and quick to use a firearm.’ He’s black, stocky and between 5 feet 9 inches and 6 feet tall, and rides a bike.

While no one knows for sure if he’s specifically targeting trans people, those in the area ought to take additional precautions.

If you have info, call the LAPD: 213-382-9470, or 877-LAPD-24-7.
