Trans Subway Attack May Be Hate Crime

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating a recent attack on a transgender woman at a subway platform. The 28-year-old woman was pushed onto subway tracks Monday by a man who was “acting erratically.” She sustained a sprained wrist, along with scratches and bruises, but made it back onto the platform with the help of bystanders, according to police. The attacker was seen in video released by the NYPD dressed in a light blue shirt and khakis.
