A trans woman has been left bloodied and injured after she was beaten by a stranger who ruled punches on the terrified 20-year-old from behind.
Attack From Behind
Charlie Graham, 20, was walking on Saturday morning to meet a friend in Sunderland when she was punched from behind.
Two homophobic thugs assaulted her, and the 20-year-old has been left thrilled by the attack.
The 20-year-old has now posted the photo online in a bid to hunt the attackers who she claimed forced her to the ground, before escaping from the scene.
She stated that she was hit on the back of her head before she dropped to the ground, injuring her legs and face.
She said that “I attempted to get back up, but they forced me back to the ground, and the two guys escape the scene. I was left bleeding and frightened.”
Victim Says This Is Not The First
She said that it is the fifth time she has been targeted for her gender and now sustained from panic attacks and is too afraid to leave the house.
Charlie stated that she had earlier been attacked and thinks it is not the last time this will happen to her.
She said that it has knocked her confidence and continued that she no longer goes anyplace on her own, as she only seems comfortable at her mother’s home.
She said that she had accepted homophobia as a reality of life and also added that people should also be proud of who they are.
Charlie stated that people should be accepted and that she has worked not to let the incidents ‘struck her up’.
The 20-year-old says that she “acts like a boy,” and she has accepted homophobia as a reality of life.
She also said that her lack of femininity does not mean she is an offensive person.
After the incident, her aunt Natalie Singh supported her clean up. She stated that Charlie was “dazed, and her eyes were rolling into the back of her head.”
Detectives Treat It As A Hate Crime
Detectives have since validated that they are treating the conflict as a hate crime.
The police are investigating the case, and they are searching for the two males who attack the 20-year-old woman.
Anyone who saw the attack on Charlie, or has data that could help police, should contact officers on 101 quoting log 46 11/01/20.
