Transgender Woman Reported Gang-Raped in New York

Transgender Woman Reported Gang-Raped in New York


At least three men were involved in the assault, police say.

A transgender woman was sexually assaulted by at least three men Thursday in a hotel room in midtown Manhattan, website reports.

The attack occurred about 2:15 a.m. and apparently arose from a dispute over money, the site reports. One of the men had been in the room with the woman earlier; after she kicked him out, he returned with two other men and a gun.

"The three men then sexually assaulted the victim as one brandished the firearm and threatened to shoot the woman if she did not stop screaming," the site reports. It's possible there were more men involved in the attack, police said.

The woman was treated at Roosevelt Hospital for bruises and abrasions. Police have released surveillance images of the woman and are asking anyone with information to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline, 800-577-TIPS.
