Police are searching for three scumbags who bashed a transgender woman in broad daylight in Park Slope on May 13.

The 32-year-old victim was on Seventh Avenue at Eighth Street at around 11:10 am when the three degenerates passed by yelling bigoted slurs, according to a report.

The jerks then attacked, punching her repeatedly in the face, fracturing her nose and eye socket, and pulling her hair, before running off, cops said.

Police ask anyone with information about the men to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Reasonable discourse

Morris from Mill Basin says:
We all have to stand up for our transgender neighbors. If you see someone being harassed, and obviously anything worse, do something. Unfortunately, this is a story that's been going on for years, and sometimes it ends in death. Stop hate.

I wonder what her race and projected financial standing is?

We've gone give month without police blotter reports from
The 78th precinct. Please post ALL of the crimes in our area in the crime blotter, not just the headline grabbers!
