Brutal Transgender Attack Reported In West Hollywood (Video)

A brutal attack of a 25-year-old transgender person in Los Angeles was caught on surveillance video this morning, showing the suspect putting his shirt on just before knocking the victim to the ground, kicking and and hitting the victim in the head with a bottle, before leaving the victim with bloody, beaten and with  broken jaw.

 Police are searching for two men and three women who can be seen in the video witnessing (or standing by) during the attack.  The assailants were caught right before the attack.   A video surveillance camera at  a marijuana dispensary captured their images right before the attack.

The victims name has not been released but  news reports are identify the victim as a “transgender woman”… who was dressed as a man (?)
