A man was offered $200 to beat a transgender woman in an attack that occurred on Friday, according to Dallas police. A police affidavit that was released on Monday shows that the woman backed into a vehicle before the driver of the vehicle pulled a gun on her and wouldn’t let her leave unless she paid money for the damage done.
According to the police, the crowd gathered around the woman when someone offered Edward Thomas, 29, $200 to beat the woman. A second person stomped on the woman’s head during the attack but has not been charged yet.
The woman suffered a concussion, fractured wrist and other injuries. Thomas is being held at the Dallas County jail on a charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.
