  SEXUAL ASSAULT

Trans Woman Gang-Raped At Gunpoint In NYC Hotel

transgender-woman-rapistsA transgender woman was sexually assaulted by at least three men at gunpoint in a Midtown hotel early Thursday morning following an argument over money, according to the NYPD.

DNAinfo reports that the attack took place at 2:15 am on February 28 in a hotel on 57th St. Police said the woman, 27, was in the hotel room with one of the men when she kicked him out after an argument.

Moments later, the man returned with two other men, carrying a gun. The three men then proceeded to sexually assault the woman while one of the men threatened to shoot her if she didn’t stop screaming.

The victim was treated for bruises and abrasions at Roosevelt Hospital. The NYPD released surveillance images of the three suspects (above), though police remain unclear whether there were additional men involved in the assault.

The NYPD is urging anyone with information to contact the NYPD Crime Stoppers hotline at 800-577-TIPS, submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to CRIMES (274637), then entering TIP577.

      I know this comment will be deleted, but I can’t help but notice the skin colour of the attackers. These three rape a trans woman; the lesbian in Texas was assaulted by a black man.

      @Mr. Enemabag Jones: I don’t see race as an issue here. Do we even know the race of the victim? We don’t even know if the guys involved are straight, gay, bi, etc. It is terrible when anyone in the community is attacked but at least it does not appear that this is a hate crime with the information we have. I hope they catch all 3 of them, put them in jail, and Big Bubba and his shower room gang all have a crack at their sphincters. That’ll teach em.

      Sorry, Chad, but rape is a pretty hateful crime. Clearly this wasn’t a spur of the moment thing–the man she was arguing with came back with friends, and a gun. If these perps were white, this would be all over the mainstream news.

      @Mr. Enemabag Jones: When i say it doesn’t appear to be a “hate crime” i mean under the current understanding of the “Hate Crimes” Bill.

      You know, I never understood why people who hate trans people so much resort to rape as a way to “get them back” for “fooling” them. I don’t get it. Sexi s about the most intimate act one can take part in. If the perps were that repulsed in the firt place, I’d think they wouldn’t want to do that with someone who repulses them. This is further proof that those who hate on us the most are likely battling same sex attractions of their own.

      I hope they catch these douchecannons and they rot in jail.

      @Mr. Enemabag Jones: Ignorant comment on your part. Gwen Arujo was murdered and her attackers were not black men. So what does race have to do with anything? Please go back to the drawing board and try again.

      @Shannon1981: Rape is not really about sex as normal people understand it, it’s about power. I think that when people end up in a situation where they feel like they’ve been rendered powerless or made to look foolish then they sometimes resort to sex-based violence as a method of “taking back” power.

      That said, I hope these fools get a good hard beating, and then jail time.

      @Shannon1981: According to the article the argument was over money not the fact of being transexual.

      Emmabag Jones is clearly one of the right wingers (or just a troll) that post hateful stuff to stir things up. Funny how those right wingers are spending do much time on a gay site…

      This crime is terrible. I hope the perps end up doing a long stretch in prison!

      (begin sarcasm)

      I’m shocked, the attackers had a gun? what happen with NYC being really tough on guns and the politicians of NY claiming all these gun laws they have are there to protect the citizenry? All those gun laws really helped stop this gun crime, right?

      (end sarcasm)

      So I’m going to guess the woman and man couldn’t come to an agreement to the cost of her “services” and he got fed up, and came back later with his goons for a freebie instead. I doubt the NYPD will put that much resources into investigating this, they’re too busy chasing nonexistent terrorists and terrorizing the populous.

      @MacTX: What makes you assume she’s a sex worker? Also, apparently, they’ve already named four suspects who are wanted for questioning.

      @Thedrdonna:

      hotel, money, middle of the night and the fishiness of the whole story.

      4? is there another article out there with more updated info that I’m not seeing? no one has been named, all they have is a surveillance picture of 3 people who they’re calling suspects and want to talk to.

      So a Transexual hooker robbed him of his money and threw him out of the room.. The guy gets back at her for swindling him.. Although what happened to her is detestable but she had it coming…Ofcourse those guys should be brought to justice but will they charge her of prostitution or not… thats another story… This is the girl and her add..

      She posted on her Facebook that she was raped in NYC by 3 guys at the same date as this incident… Here is her facebook (https://www.facebook.com/evalin1989)

      and i have heard she is a pornstar as well… puts a whole new twist to the story…
